In collaboration with Major League Baseball, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Nashville, the Nashville Sounds minor league baseball team, and additional partners, the singer’s charity foundation is contributing $500,000 to the revitalization of the esteemed Parkwood Community Club fields. This initiative forms a segment of a $12 million funding effort within the region, including the development of a metropolitan park and the construction of 26 Habitat for Humanity homes.
“I started the Morgan Wallen Foundation to support youth in two areas – sports and music. When I heard about Parkwood, right here in Nashville, I knew I wanted to help,” Wallen shared in a press release. “Every child deserves a chance to play ball and be part of a team, and I truly appreciate this opportunity to be part of Parkwood’s next inning.”
Wallen added, “I can’t wait to come back out here and see the park once it has been renovated.”
Being a passionate sports enthusiast, Wallen knows very well that the influence of sports can be a large impact in a young person’s life. At a young age, he developed a deep affection for baseball and aspired to play professionally. Regrettably, an injury derailed those goals, but gave him invaluable life lessons to both his professional and personal journey.
Wallen is currently embarking on his One Night at a Time world tour where he performs his acclaimed songs from his ‘One Thing at a Time‘ album, which has consistently held its dominant spot on the country album charts since its initial release earlier this year.
