Chris Stapleton and his wife Morgane's cleverly titled charity, Outlaw State of Kind, gave back to the singer and songwriter's home state of Kentucky in a grand way, gifting Lexington Habitat for Humanity $10,000.

In a press release issued in late June, Lexington Habitat CEO Rachel Childress shared feelings of gratitude and shock over the donation.

"We were thrilled when the check came in the mail. It was completely unexpected," Childress says. "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."

Per the press release, 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 Stapleton family founded Outlaw State of Kind, named for the song "Outlaw State of Mind," in 2016. The fund is administered by the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee and supports a variety of causes that are close to Stapleton's heart. Over the past three years, the charity has donated to several Habitat for Humanity organizations in different cities, including Nashville. Additional causes supported include the Blue Grass Community Foundation, Companions for Heroes, the FBI Agents Association Memorial College Fund, Music Heath Alliance, Musicares Foundation and numerous others.

The charitable donation comes at a busy time in Stapleton's career. He's on the new Toy Story 4 soundtrack, and his trend-bucking All-American Road Show Tour continues into the fall.
