NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Loretta Lynn will hold a star-studded concert later this month to raise money for the victims of the catastrophic flooding in Humphreys County, the country music legend announced Friday morning.
“Loretta Lynn’s Friends: Hometown Rising” is scheduled for the night of Sept. 13 at the Grand Ole Opry House, and will feature performances by Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Luke Bryan and Luke Combs.
“I am so honored that so many of our friends are coming together to show so much love for our neighbors and community after such a devastating loss,” Lynn said in a statement. “You know, we’ve all needed help from time-to-time, and that’s why when we can give back, we do.”
Twenty people were killed when catastrophic flooding hit Humphreys County on the morning of Aug. 21. Lynn’s longtime ranch hand, Wayne Spears was among the victims.
The flooding also left extensive damage across Middle Tennessee, destroying and damaging hundreds of homes.
Tickets for the benefit concert went on sale Friday at 10 a.m. at Opry.com.
All proceeds from the event will benefit United Way of Humphreys County.
Lynn added that more artists are expected to take part in the concert. Those performers will be announced at a later date.
