Last summer, Tim Austin watched his business go up in flames.
Five months later, he's busy rebuilding Doobie Shea (DOO-bee SHAY) studios with a little help from his friends.

Doobie Shea has recorded some of the best- known names in bluegrass.
But on August 24th, lightning struck the studio and burned the building to the ground.

Today, a new studio is under construction near Boones Mill... and the crew includes some of the musicians who recorded with Austin before the fire.

IN Q=It was like the worst thing

((TIM AUSTIN/DOOBIE SHEA STUDIOS: IT WAS LIKE THE WORST THING THAT EVER COULD HAVE HAPPENED TO YOU I GUESS IN BUSINESS. AFTER THE FIRE WE WERE TWO OR THREE DAYS AT LEAST TRYING TO PICK UP THE PIECES OF WHAT WE WERE GOING TO DO AND IMMEDIATELY AFTER ABOUT A WEEK, "WE'VE GOT TO GET BACK.")) ((GARY WAUGH/FIVE FOR THE GOSPEL: WE LEARN AS WE GO BACK IN HISTORY THAT A LOT OF TIMES WHEN SOMEONE HAD A PROBLEM OR WAS BURNED OUT THAT THE NEIGHBORS SORT OF CHIPPED IN AND CAME AROUND AND TRIED TO HELP GET BUILT BACK AND I THINK THAT NEEDS TO BE DONE TODAY.))

While the construction isn't complete, Austin is already booking new projects and he hopes to have Doobie Shea studios back in business by the end of February. (----------------)
