NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Country stars are doing what they can to help out Humphreys County after the recent deadly flood.

Loretta Lynn's "Hometown Rising" benefit concert will take place at the Grand Ole Opry House at 7 p.m.

The recent Humphreys County flood killed 20 people and damaged several homes.

Loretta Lynn is working with Garth Brooks, Trisha Yearwood, Luke Bryan, Luke Combs and more for the benefit concert.

Lynn's ranch suffered damage in the floods, but the family also lost a beloved friend.

Longtime ranch foreman Wayne Spears was one of the victim, having been swept away in the flood waters.

Lynn's granddaughter said their family continues to grieve.

"For the kids, it's been so hard. Wayne is this hero at the ranch, but he's also to my 9 and 5-year-olds, like another grandfather," said Tayla Lynn. "Our focus now is on the people of Humphreys County. What can we do to help the people of Humphreys County?"

All the money will be sent to the United Way of Humphreys County.

The concert is sold out but you can watch the live stream from the Grand Ole Opry House.
