Tennessee is still recovering after devastating floods in late August. Loretta Lynn’s Ranch and nearby home in Humphreys County were hit especially hard by the disaster. Now Loretta Lynn is bringing in the big guns for a benefit concert to raise money for those affected. What do we know about the concert so far?
Loretta Lynn’s Reach Goes Beyond Country Music
Loretta Lynn has been one of the biggest names in country music for over 50 years. She knows everyone from the Muppets to Kid Rock. Lynn turned heads by collaborating with rock musician Jack White on her 2004 Van Lear Rose album.
She proudly displays a photo on her Instagram feed with actress Gwyneth Paltrow. It’s possible the star-studded benefit concert will include celebrities outside the country music community. Keep reading to find out about the upcoming benefit.

Loretta Lynn was personally affected by the summer floods in Tennessee. A worker on her Ranch tourist attraction in Hurricane Mills, TN, was lost in the floodwaters. She hopes to raise money not just for Wayne Spears, but for the community as a whole.
The iconic country music star took to social media to share that she’s putting together a benefit concert. Loretta Lynn’s Friends: Hometown Rising already has some big names in country music attached.
Husband and wife team Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood will headline the concert. They are joined by Luke Combs and Luke Bryan. It’s likely that more names will be added as the event nears. When is the benefit concert?
