Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Luke Combs and Luke Bryan will perform at a Nashville concert to raise funds for victims of the catastrophic floods last month in Middle Tennessee. Loretta Lynn, who resides in one of the counties hardest hit by the flooding, is organizing the event, set for Monday, September 13th, at the Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville.

Titled “Loretta Lynn’s Friends: Hometown Rising,” the concert will air live on Circle Network at 8 p.m. ET and also stream on Circle All Access on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube. All proceeds from the concert and livestream will benefit the 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,” 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.”

The August 17th flash floods in Dickson and Humphreys counties, particularly in the community of Waverly, resulted in 20 fatalities. Lynn was personally affected: a longtime worker at her ranch in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee, died in the flooding.

Tickets for the concert go on sale Friday morning. Additional artists are expected to be announced.

Morgan Wallen has also announced his own benefit concert in support of the flood victims. “Morgan Wallen and Friends,” a writers round acoustic show featuring Dierks Bentley, Hardy, Cole Swindell and others, is set for September 8th at Marathon Music Works in Nashville. Tickets have already sold out.
