"It's kind of been like a dream,"

It's a dream that quickly became a nightmare.

Now that's she's awake, Ella May Kay says she doesn't remember much from the crash that nearly took her life last Thursday.

"I did remember looking over at Steven saying I love you," recalls Ella May Kay.

Ella May's and her husband Steven Kassa were headed home to get ready for a show when they were involved in a seven-car pile up along Dickerson Road.

"It's been rough.I don't know what else to say. It's been a rough week compared to what I normally do during the week," says Ella May Kay.

A normal week for Ella May would include performing with her band, Ella May and the Remedy.

"I am a, entertainer songwriter singer I love to be on stage singing my songs."

She and her husband, Steven, would share the stage together.

"My husband is my drummer and he's an awesome singer and he does backups from me...And, he kind of runs the show. He's my manager."

Steven has a severe concussion and a fractured back, and Ella May has a broken neck, seven broken ribs, a fractured collar bone and a broken hip.

"When something like this happens,they forget about all those things and everybody comes together. And, the music community here is unbelievable," says couple's close friend Sherrie Hensley.

The music community has rallied behind the couple and scheduled several benefits.

The first will be October 31st at the Music City Bar and Grille.

The next benefit will be on November 5th benefit with The Remedy and Music City Playboys.

A fund has also been established.

It's set up at US Bank under Steven Kassa's name.
