WILLIAMSON COUNTY, Tenn. — Country star and Lee County native Luke Bryan helped rescue a horse stranded in a Tennessee River Sunday, various media reports say.

According to one account at allaccess.com, Bryan was traveling down the Harpeth River with a friend when they spotted the horse's head barely above the water.

Bryan called 9-1-1, alerted nearby neighbors and began rescue attempts, the website reports.

"The horse, named MISTY, had wandered too far through a back field and was walking along a rain-soaked riverbank when it collapsed. MISTY tumbled 15 feet into the water below," the website reports.

"It was a blessing. If they (LUKE BRYAN and friend) hadn't been going down the river in the boat, I wouldn't have known that she'd fallen in," said the horse’s owner, Janet McCormick. "You can't thank anybody enough for taking an interest and being so helpful and genuine, and it's a blessing to have good neighbors,” she continued.
