Country star Chris Young will be joining Alan Jackson for the “Where I Come From” tornado relief benefit in Newnan June 26.

The final lineup for the concert, which will be held at the Coweta County Fairgrounds, was announced Wednesday morning.

Also performing will be Caylee Hammack, Adam Wright and "Big City" Brian Wright.

All proceeds from the concert will benefit the Coweta Community Foundation's Tornado Relief Fund. Tickets go on sale Friday at AlanJacksonBenefit.com

Young, who got his start as winner of the singing competition "Nashville Star" in 2006, has been performing ever since and has 11 No. 1 songs. His hits include "Gettin' You Home (The Black Dress Song)," "Losing Sleep," "Think of You," "I'm Coming' Over," "Tomorrow," and "The Man I want to Be."

Young’s current hit is “Famous Friends” with Kane Brown.

Hammack, a Georgia native, recently released her major label debut album, "If I Wasn't for You." Hammack co-produced the entire project and wrote or co-wrote each song. Reba McEntire, Ashely McBryde and Tennille Townes lent their voices to the project, and Hammack was nominated for the ACM New Female Artist of the Year Award. Jackson has worked with Hammack, singing on her recording of "Lord, I Hope This Day is Good."

Adam Wright is a singer-songwriter-producer who has been nominated for two Grammys. Wright's songs have been recorded by Jackson, as well as Lee Ann Womack, Trisha Yearwood, Garth Brooks and John Legend. His newest album, "I Win," was released last fall.

"Big City" Brian Wright has been performing for nearly two decades. Adam and Brian are brothers and Jackson's nephews. They are the sons of Newnan residents Cathy and Lamar Wright.
