Montgomery Gentry got together with associates from The Home Depot this past Wednesday to build a custom playground designed by KaBOOM! at the Booker T Washington Academy in Lexington, KY. The playground was built in their honor as part of the ACM/Home Depot Humanitarian Award they received this past April at the 45th Annual ACM Awards show.
Following that awards show, Montgomery Gentry asked country music fans and consumers to help select the city where the new KaBOOM! playground would be built. Over 54,000 votes were cast and Lexington, KY came out on top.
The ACM/Home Depot Humanitarian Award is presented annually to recognize country music artists who serve others, have a generous spirit and help build the dreams of those in need. Past recipients of the Humanitarian Award include LeAnn Rimes, Rascal Flatts, Brooks & Dunn, Vince Gill, Neal McCoy, Martina McBride, Lonestar and Reba McEntire.
