A small plane flying a banner for CMA Fest made an emergency landing by an interstate near downtown Nashville on Saturday.
The plane was advertising "Meet Lady Antebellum text CMA to 31996" when the pilot felt the engine sputtering, Billboard reports. The plane landed due to engine failure around 2:15 p.m. in on a grassy area near the junction of two interstates. No injuries were reported.
"I didn't have a lot of choices," pilot Wayne Mansfield said. "I maneuvered the plane, picked my spot and landed it."
Mansfield, who was in Nashville just for the CMA Fest job, believes the problem was an exhaust valve failure. He is based just outside of Boston.
The band tweeted their relief that no one was hurt upon hearing the news.
So unbelievably glad everyone is ok! https://t.co/cWGIrNN2IM— Lady Antebellum (@ladyantebellum) June 10, 2017
