Country artists BRELAND, Little Big Town, Reba McEntire, Brittney Spencer and Keith Urban are among the just-announced artists that will be joining legend Loretta Lynn’s flood relief efforts by taking the stage at the Grand Ole Opry House on Monday, September 13. The newly announced performers join the previously announced lineup, which includes Garth Brooks & Trisha Yearwood, Luke Bryan and Luke Combs.
Following the catastrophic floods that tore through rural Tennessee on Saturday, August 17, Lynn believes that coming together as a community is of the utmost importance.
“It’s so heartwarming to see everyone in our hometown to step up to help those in need,” the singer shared. “I’m honored that some of my best friends in Nashville have been so eager to help, too, and I can’t wait to watch the great show they put on. I hope you’ll tune in with me!”

All proceeds from the event benefit United Way of Humphreys County.
“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,” Executive Director Nioka Curtis explained. “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.”
The sold-out Loretta Lynn’s Friends: Hometown Rising benefit is scheduled to premiere live on Circle Network at 8/7c and can also be streamed on Circle All Access via Facebook, Twitter and YouTube and Gray TV stations, DISH Studio Channel 102, Sling TV and other TV affiliates.
