The three-hour telethon will air next Tuesday, December 13, at 8 p.m. ET on the Great American Country channel, and will be simulcast on radio as well.

“My home in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee is some place special,” Parton says. “Wildfires have affected many of the people — my people — who live in those beautiful mountains. We want to provide a hand up to those families who have lost everything in the fires. I know it has been a trying time for my people and this assistance will help get them back on their feet.”

Dolly’s My People Fund is providing $1,000 per month to families in Sevier County, Tennessee, that lost their primary residences in the fires last week. Parton was born in Sevier County. During the telethon, viewers will be able to call 1-866-CARE-MORE to donate to the cause.

The telethon’s lineup also includes Alison Krauss and Reba McEntire. Expect announcements about more of Parton’s celebrity friends who’ll be joining her at the fundraiser as the event approaches.
