Chris Stapleton continuing his quiet support for the communities of Central Kentucky, including his hometown of Lexington. The five-time Grammy Award winner, and his wife Morgane, recently made a $10,000 donation to Lexington Habitat for Humanity.

“We were thrilled when the check came in the mail. It was completely unexpected,” said Rachel Childress, Lexington Habitat CEO. “It is beautiful when people use their resources to help others. Every dollar makes a difference and we know this gift will make a big impact on Lexington families. We are so grateful.”

The donation will be used to help people in need of safe, affordable housing and support Lexington Habitat’s mission to build homes, communities and hope. The contribution came from Stapleton’s charitable fund, Outlaw State of Kind, named after his hit song Outlaw State of Mind. The fund is administered by the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee and supports a variety of causes that are close to Stapleton’s heart.
