AUSTIN (AP) - An Oct. 17 concert featuring Willie Nelson, Lyle Lovett and the group Asleep at the Wheel will benefit Central Texas wildfire victims.

Tickets go on sale Friday for the event at the Erwin Center in Austin.

Wildfires this month in Bastrop County, about 25 miles east of Austin, have left two people dead and destroyed nearly 1,600 homes. The Texas Forest Service says more than 34,000 acres were blackened.

Kyle Chandler, who on Sunday won an Emmy for best actor in a drama in the final season of the TV show “Friday Night Lights,” will help host the benefit. Chandler recently did public service announcements in support of volunteer firefighters across Texas.
