Dolly Parton's beloved Smoky Mountains may never look the same again after massive wildfires destroyed much of their beautiful landscape.

But, worse than that, several thousands of people have been adversely affected and, at last count, 14 have died.

So, now's the time to take action. And that's exactly what Dolly has done with Smoky Mountains Rise, an all-star concert to benefit those affected by the wildfires.

Smoky Mountains Rise: A Benefit for the My People Fund will air next Tuesday, December 13th, at 8PM on GAC.

The three-hour telethon will raise money for Dolly's My People Fund.

That fund will, in turn, will send monthly $1000 payments to families affected by the wildfires in Sevier County, Tennessee, where Dolly grew up.

Reba McEntire, Kenny Rogers, and Alison Krauss have already signed on to perform with more to come, I'm sure.

Here's a word from Dolly about her charities and how they will help:
