Chris Young Surprises His Former Music Teacher with Grant for Classroom Funds

Sony Music Nashville

Chris Young surprised his former Seigel High school music teacher, Brenda Gregory, with a $2,500 grant for classroom funds Saturday in Nashville. She was giving a music lesson at the CMA Music Festival’s Fan Fair X when Chris surprised her with the check. Chris teamed up with Farmers Insurance Thank America’s Teacher initiative to make the donation possible.

Chris tells People, “She is so deserving. Ms. Gregory has always been supportive of my musical side, both in and outside of school. I’m glad I had a chance to help recognize all her hard work.”

Chris goes on to say his favorite memory of his former teacher is the time she took their school choir to London to perform.
