Swift donated $100,000 to Dolly Parton’s “Smoky Mountains Rise: A Benefit for the My People Fund," The Tennessean reported.

The telethon will air on Tuesday. The ACM also donated $100,000 to bring the total to $200,000 to kick off the telethon.

The fires took 14 lives and destroyed millions of dollars of property.

Kenny Chesney, a native of Knoxville, Tennessee, has teamed up with the Country Music Association to donate $500,000. A portion of that donation will also go to Parton’s My People Fund.

Tuesday’s show will feature a lineup of country music legends including Reba McEntire, Kenny Rogers, Alison Krauss, Chris Stapleton and others.

Checks can be mailed to the Dollywood Foundation, 2700 Dollywood Parks Blvd., Pigeon Forge, TN 37863. Donations can be made online at dollywoodfoundation.org.
