Loretta Lynn and a handful of her country music friends will be hosting “Loretta Lynn’s Friends: Hometown Rising Flood Relief Benefit Concert” in response to the devastating flooding that took place in Dickson and Lynn’s hometown of Humphreys Counties.
Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Luke Bryan and Luke Combs have all jumped in to perform with more artists to be announced in the coming days. Slated for Sept.13 at the Grand Ole Opry House, tickets are on sale now. The special event will also be broadcast live on Circle Network at 7 p.m. CT in addition to live streaming on Circle All Access via social media. All proceeds will directly support United Way of Humphreys County.
“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,” shares Lynn. “You know, we’ve all needed help from time-to-time, and that’s why when we can give back, we do.”
The devastating floods rushed through rural Tennessee on Aug. 17 after the area received more than 15 inches of rain over a six-hour period, leading to flash flooding that took the lives of 20 people–including the Lynn family’s own longtime ranch hand Wayne Spears.
“United Way of Humphreys County has been dedicated to our communities for years, and we established the Humphreys County Flood Relief Fund to get immediate and long-term needs met for all the flood victims,” notes Executive Director Nioka Curtis. “We had no idea this would be one of the worst floods in our history, but our community will be whole again. It’s UWHC’s goal to help make that happen as quickly as possible with the help of our generous donors. From the rental deposits and down payments necessary for people to get re-housed, to remodeling, replacing clothing and rebuilding their lives, we want to make sure their needs are met and we will continue our fight to make that happen.”
