Loretta Lynn is holding a livestream concert to benefit the victims of the deadly flooding in Tennessee. The 89-year-old Lynn shared plans for ‘Loretta Lynn’s Friends: Hometown Rising,’ to be held from the Grand Ole Opry on September 13 at 7 PM, with proceeds from the event and live stream benefiting the United Way of Humphreys County. Among the country stars performing at the event will be Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Luke Bryan, and Luke Combs.
Lynn said on Instagram: “The flood that devastated our area has been awful, but love is stronger. I’m so grateful for my friends who are answering my call for us to all pitch in and help every way we can.” Lynn’s ranch foreman Wayne Spears died after he was caught in the flood’s undertow. Via a press release, Lynn also said, “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. You know, we’ve all needed help from time-to-time, and that’s why when we can give back, we do.”
