“It’s so heartwarming to see everyone in our hometown to step up to help those in need,” shared Lynn. “I’m honored that some of my best friends in Nashville have been so eager to help, too, and I can’t wait to watch the great show they put on. I hope you’ll tune in with me!”
In addition to the concert, Lynn has partnered with Kendra Scott to garner additional support for the cause, with the jewelry company donating 50% of proceeds from the sale of their Tennessee Guitar charm throughout the month of September to United Way of Humphreys County.

“United Way of Humphreys County has been dedicated to our communities for years, and we established the Humphreys County Flood Relief Fund to get immediate and long-term needs met for all the flood victims,” added Executive Director Nioka Curtis. “We had no idea this would be one of the worst floods in our history, but our community will be whole again. It’s UWHC’s goal to help make that happen as quickly as possible with the help of our generous donors. From the rental deposits and down payments necessary for people to get re-housed, to remodeling, replacing clothing and rebuilding their lives, we want to make sure their needs are met and we will continue our fight to make that happen.”
The devastating floods rushed through rural Tennessee on Saturday, August 17 after the area received more than 15 inches of rain over a six-hour period, leading to flash flooding that took the lives of 20 people – including the Lynn family’s own longtime ranch hand Wayne Spears – and destroyed hundreds of homes. While the community has come together to support those affected, the effects of the storm will be long lasting and the efforts of the concert beneficiary, United Way of Humphreys County, will be crucial.
