Famous Country Music Star Leaves $1K Tip For Waitress Caring For Daughter

A Waffle House employee in Greensboro, North Carolina got quite the surprise from an anonymous country music star.

Waitress Shirell "Honey" Lackey was performing double duties at the popular late night spot, caring for her daughter while also tending to customers. She was working a double shift from 7 a.m. until 9 p.m. A country music star and his team came in and saw the waitress pulling double duty and the team member tipped her $50. But that's not all that went down, the team member went back to the country music star and shared the story of Lackey and her work ethic right before he was set to order his to-go meal.

The country music star, who Lackey wants to keep anonymous, left a $1,000 tip. Right after writing that down, Lackey shared that he gave her some words of encouragement saying, "I have to respect a mother that would do whatever it takes to support their child in a society where people don't even want to work anymore." Not only that, the country music star gave Lackey two concert tickets and sent baby clothes and toys to her home for her daughter Bella.

The Bobby Bones Show and its listeners were trying to guess who the anonymous country music star is and just a few of the guesses were Darius Rucker, Luke Combs, Scotty McCreery, and Kane Brown. Guess we may never know who it was!
