For a limited time, Dolly Parton’s Smoky Mountains Business will be donating a portion of ticket sales to the United Way of Humphreys County, Tennessee to provide relief for victims of the devastating flooding that occured in August.
- Dolly Parton is using her Smoky Mountains businesses to help support relief efforts for Middle Tennessee after devastating flooding has affected the area.
- Parton’s friend and fellow music legend Loretta Lynn hails from Humphreys County, one of several counties where catastrophic flooding claimed the lives of more than 20 people this past August including the foreman of Lynn’s ranch.
- In 2016 Parton’s hometown suffered damage from raging wildfires and she was grateful for the support the community received from friends across the nation and especially from Lynn. Now she’s working to return the favor.
- Parton through Dollywood and her Pigeon Forge dinner show properties will each donate a portion of ticket sales from October 2-3 to benefit the United Way of Humphreys County, the charity selected by Lynn.

What They’re Saying:
- Dolly Parton: “After the Sevier County wildfires in 2016, Loretta was one of the first who reached out to offer anything she could. It meant so much to me that Loretta—and so many folks—were ready to give in any way they could. This was just one small way I could help Loretta’s people for all they did to help my people.”
