Country music star and Kentucky native Chris Stapleton has stepped in to help with the flood relief efforts that have devastated the eastern portion of the state.
There have been a plethora of images on social media showing Stapleton purchasing supplies for flood victims. In addition to buying supplies he helped to clean houses, move furniture, and offered moral support for those hurting.
Chris Stapleton is loved in eastern Kentucky b/c he’s from Johnson County and he’s immensely talented. But also b/c of this. That’s Chris in the Prestonsburg Walmart buying stuff for folks and cleaning houses in Knott County. David Smith said Chris went unnoticed for awhile. 😀 pic.twitter.com/WbS1dMT2cP— Phil Paige (@Phil_JKD) August 2, 2022
Chris is big on charity, he even founded a charity called “Outlaw State of Kind” with his wife. He announced that through that he will be donating to the Kentucky Red Cross and the Appalachia Crisis Fund.

Gov. Andy Beshear (D) said the death toll from the floods was 37 plus at last count, and left many people homeless. Stapleton who was born in Lexington but raised in Johnson county, located in the eastern portion of Kentucky simply wanted to give back to good hard working people of Kentucky.
