Giving back to people has always been an important goal for Montgomery Gentry, and especially giving back to their home state of Kentucky!
Recipients of the 2010 Academy of Country Music's Humanitarian Award, Eddie Montgomery and Troy Gentry were blessed with the ability to give back even more to their fellow Kentucky residents!
Just a few short months later, in October 2010, they performed an amazing feat that truly enriched lives.
KaBoom, The Home Depot, Montgomery Gentry, and over 200 volunteers joined forces and converged on Booker T. Washington Academy in Lexington, Kentucky to build the school's very first playground!
The amazing part is that they completed the entire project in just one day!
The location of the playground was voted on by fans and the KaBoom playground was built in honor of the duo!
"It feels good to be back in our hometown and doing something locally for our community," Gentry said in an interview with The ACM.
"It's been unbelievable! I can't thank everybody enough," Montgomery added. "All the kids have been looking out the windows at the swing set -- and they can't wait to get turned loose!"
As a huge thank you to Montgomery Gentry and the partners, the kids sang a thank you song back to the pair and chose a very fitting tune, "My Town"!
