Inside Edition went behind the scenes of Tuesday’s telethon.

County singer Lucas Hoge will be among the stars helping Parton raise the money.

He told Inside Edition: “I’m getting ready to answer phone calls. Ii will be joined by my friends Kenny Rogers, Reba McEntire and Cyndi Lauper. We are ready to help all of the victims of the fires.”

America watched in horror as people fled the wildfires that caused the evacuation of Dolly Parton's popular Dollywood theme park.

Parton herself pledged $1,000-a-month to families who lost homes.
