Last month, Hurricane Ida slammed into the Gulf Coast. The devastation from the storm stretched into Middle Tennessee and beyond. However, things got tragically out of hand in the Volunteer State. The sky opened up and dumped massive amounts of rain on the region. This caused flooding that left many communities and homes in ruins. Loretta Lynn was just one of those who were directly affected by Ida’s wrath. The floods destroyed her Hurricane Mills ranch and killed the ranch’s foreman.
In response to the widespread destruction and her own grief, Loretta Lynn decided to do something to help her fellow Middle Tennessee residents. She put together a benefit concert to raise money for the area. Several of country music’s biggest names quickly signed up to join the Coal Miner’s Daughter in her endeavor.
Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood were among the first artists on the bill. Those who keep up with the iconic couple know that they are both very generous. The same could be said about Luke Combs, who is also on the bill. Luke Bryan was also on the original list of performers. However, Lynn’s initial announcement promised that more artists would be added to the event in the future.
Today, Loretta Lynn announced that several more artists had joined the already stacked lineup. Hometown Rising is going to be a great concert. Helping those in need has never sounded this good.
Lynn shared the latest update on Twitter.
“More of my amazing friends are turning out to help middle Tennessee flood victims,” Loretta Lynn wrote. She added, “Hearts of gold. I love them all.”
Breland, Little Big Town, Reba McEntire, Brittney Spencer, and Keith Urban have all signed up to help Hometown Rising to be a successful charity event.
