Among the Artists named to appear on Dolly Parton’s “Smoky Mountains Rise: A Benefit For the My People Fund” telethon were Alison Krauss, Reba McEntire, and Dolly’s long time singing partner, Kenny Rogers. The telethon will air at 7pm , on Tuesday, December 13th, on Great American Country.
Benefitting the Dollywood Foundation’s My People Fund, the three hour telethon is designed to provide a thousand dollars a month for six months to residents of Sevier County who lost their primary homes in the recent wildfires that swept the area.
“I know it has been a trying time for my people and this assistance will help get them back on their feet,” Parton said explaining why she established the telethon.
Renters and homeowners in the region can apply at dollywoodfoundation. org.
The USA Today Network plans to stream the telethon.
