MITCHELL — Lloyd Wood will be performing his classic Country and Comedy show live stream through the Mitchell Opera House YouTube page. The live stream begins at 7 p.m. Jan. 28 and ends around 8:30 p.m.

The livestream concert is a benefit to raise money for Jerrod Bales, who is awaiting a double lung transplant. All proceeds will go directly to Jerrod and his family. Money can be donated through Eventbrite or by taking cash or check or mailing a check to Hoosier Uplands at 500 W. Main St. Mitchell, IN 47446.

As a singer, songwriter, guitarist, and vocal impressionist, Lloyd first gained a regional following as Lloyd Wood and the Little Nashville Express, the house band for the Little Nashville Opry.

They opened the show for most of the bigger acts in country music in the late 1970s and early 80s and gained a following among regional country fans. He is also a recipient of the Sagamore of the Wabash, the highest honor bestowed by an Indiana governor.

Lloyd also does impersonations of George Jones, Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Elvis, and even Tiny Tim.

Jerrod Bales, 44, is a non-smoker, who is with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis, which is a lung disease that scars the air sacs within the lungs to the extent that the damage is irreversible. The condition leaves him more susceptible to contracting viruses, infections and difficult and labored breathing. He is awaiting a double lung transplant.
