Morgan Wallen launched the More Than My Hometown Foundation, named after his fourth consecutive No. 1 single of the same name, from his record-breaking sophomore project, Dangerous: The Double Album.
Following his in-depth interview on Good Morning America, the country superstar launched a brand new foundation that “believes every young person deserves the best chance at a great life, by strengthening and fostering these four pillars: FAMILY, COMMUNITY, GUIDANCE, and LOVE – we open the door for greater opportunity and hope,” according to the foundation’s website.
Established by Wallen in 2021, the More Than My Hometown Foundation will help young people find families that can provide warm, loving homes to “rebuild their confidence, self-belief, and to feel forever loved, with a forever family.”
After witnessing his parents, Lesli & Tommy, adopt a young girl named Lacey on Monday (July 12) with the help of Omni Visions in Knoxville, Tennessee, and watching his new sister’s growth and confidence, Wallen was inspired to launch the new foundation to assist underprivileged children.
“Since my parents fostered and now officially adopted my sister Lacy, I’ve witnessed what love and care can do for a child that didn’t have it before. She has transformed into a confident, trusting and happy kid,” Wallen said in a statement on the foundation’s website. “There are many elements that aid in the development and protection of an adolescents life, and that is why I created the foundation so a child’s resources are not limited due to their circumstances.”
Wallen previously praised his parents following their adoption of his new sister, “You guys are special people!! Thankful for you.”
