One thing we can now say about country superstar Chris Young: He’s not a bad tipper. In fact, he can be downright generous with his tips, especially to Nashville musicians.

Per Taste of Country, Young recently joined TikTok star Lexy Burke in “paying it forward” to some musicians in Music City’s downtown. Burke recently started a trend where she collects “spare change” from her 1.6 million TikTok followers, then uses it to pay service industry workers huge surprise tips. Young decided to join in on her generous venture.

Before they meet the musicians, Chris Young tells fans, “I know a lot of people have that dream. I’ve been blessed so much in my career. We’re going to go find somebody playing some music and bless them today.”

Chris Young and Lexy Burke Team Up and Tip

The video cuts to Burke standing in front of a small stage where two musicians sit. She starts to put a bill in the jar, causing one of the musicians to say, “Thank you so much, thank you, thank you.” But she just keeps going, putting $1,000 total in the jar.

When she’s finished, Burke asks the stunned musicians, “Do you guys know any Chris Young by chance? He’s, like, my favorite artist.”

Before they get a chance to respond, the man himself walks over and puts another $1,000 in the jar. “By the way, I know she loves to do this. I just wanted to match her since there’s two of you.”

The Nashville musicians thank the country legend, letting him get up on stage and perform his recent single, “Famous Friends.” When he’s finished, Chris Young says, “Y’all stick around and listen to these guys play some country music. This is what it’s all about being here in Nashville.”

In the caption of the TikTok video, Young writes, “Loved that @lexylately has been paying it forward. Had to join her for one of these!”

We love to see musicians supporting other musicians, no matter if they’re successful or unknown. It’s all about loving the music, at the end of the day, and supporting the people who share it with the world.
