The two-hour-long benefit concert will feature a cadre of Nashville and Hollywood celebrities giving inspirational performances and passionate speeches to raise funds for the survivors and victims of the flooding that devastated Waverly.

United Way of Humphreys County will distribute 100% of the proceeds to the survivors and families of the victims. The concert will also be streamed live across all digital platforms allowing viewers to donate from their homes. Viewers are encouraged to donate to the United Way of Humphreys County by texting FLOODRELIEF to 269-89.

The concert will also include video messages from NBC’s “This Is Us” actress Chrissy Metz and more to help raise funds for community relief.

Waverly is the hometown of Vaughn who noted, “Waiting over 24 hours to find out if my family was safe was terrifying. I’m grateful that my mom and the rest of my family are safe, but I know there are so many who were not as lucky. Now is the time for all of us to come together and give all we can to help build back ‘Waverly Strong.’”
