PAINTSVILLE, Ky. (FOX 56) – Country music singer Chris Stapleton has been seen offering a helping hand to eastern Kentucky communities impacted by flood damage.

The Christian Appalachian Project estimated more than 100,000 people have been affected by the flooding in Breathitt, Clay Knott, Letcher, Perry, and other counties.

Stapleton, who grew up in Kentucky, has been known to support his Kentucky home when it is needed. In April, Stapleton’s non-profit “Outlaw State of Kind” announced over $1,000,000 raised for communities ravaged by tornados in western Kentucky.

Now the eight-time Grammy-winning artist is touring eastern Kentucky offering a helping hand.

Stapleton’s charity is collecting funds to donate to both the American Red Cross and the Appalachia Crisis Fund to help those in eastern Kentucky, according to his charity site.

Katrina Lynn Spencer, a Lowe’s employee, saw Stapleton out in Paintsville while she was working.

She said he was, “Very humble and down to earth, so friendly he put up with all of us wanting pictures.”
