Chris Stapleton is a class act in the truest sense of the word.
He has been on site in his home state of Kentucky for a few days and is doing his best to help where he can Stop at the local Walmart to buy supplies for the flood victims.
Late last week and early this week, rain battered eastern Kentucky, resulting in catastrophic flooding that killed more than 30 people and left hundreds more unlocated.
The damage was completely devastating and just yesterday Chris was photographed with the Franklin County Sheriff’s Department as he pitched in wherever he could to help local officers.
Mariah Curry shared an enthusiastic post on Facebook about Chris since her husband Logan is a Franklin Division officer.
She said that Logan couldn’t get over how helpful and willing Chris was to do whatever was necessary and that he wanted to “be God’s hand in hand with the people who need help most right now”:
“Logan is back at Knott Co today and had an extra pair of hands in Chris Stapleton!
Logan couldn’t express how much Chris wanted to help with anything, literally anything. No job was too small or under him.
This man loves eastern Kentucky and he wanted to be God’s hands and feet to those who need help most right now!”
I don’t think you can get more praise, and it just goes to show that while Chris is an absolutely incredible musician (and that’s probably an understatement), he’s an even better person.

Knott County Schools also shared a post on the same day from Chris, who was working with local law enforcement, with photos of them removing items from the damaged homes that had been flooded days earlier:
“Chris Stapleton, Josh Richardson-Kentucky State Police, deputies from the Knott County Sheriff’s Department and a Shelbyville officer are helping in the community move items out of homes!!”
Roll up your sleeves and lend a helping hand to your community when it needs it most…respect. Chris Stapleton is one of the good guys, no doubt about that.
Compatriot Tyler Childers was also there seen in Letcher County Over the weekend, we also helped locals in this community repair some of the damage caused by record floods.
And Chris doesn’t just show up to help his fellow Kentucky compatriots in person, his charity Lawless state of the art has also pledged to donate funds to the Kentucky Red Cross and the Appalachia Crisis Fund.
