Doing Her Parton: Dolly Hosting Telethon to Raise Money for Tennessee Wildfire Relief
The country superstar has vowed to help those affected by the Tennessee tragedy.
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.
Now, she’s appealing to the public for help.
In a PSA for the event, which will air on the Great American Country Network at 8 p.m., she said: “Together we'll raise money for the MyPeopleFund and pay tribute to the heroic efforts of first responders.”
