Country music stars are teaming up to help a Pennsylvania man with stage 4 squamous cell carcinoma, a form of skin cancer, after hearing he was hosting yard sales to pay for his own funeral.   

.  

On Saturday (Oct. 27), the Grand Ole Opry will host Willie’s Yard Sale, where items from their collection will be sold, in addition to a silent auction of special country memorabilia. The money will go toward Willie Davis’ funeral funds. Among the items for sale are Opry sweatshirts, t-shirts and framed prints. The auction will feature a signed pink guitar from Carrie Underwood, a signed print recognizing her 10 years as an Opry member, and a Dustin Lynch-signed induction poster, cap and CD.   

The sale will take place on the Opry Plaza in Nashville on from 10 a.m. local time to 6:45 p.m.
