In the year 2004, the country music rockstar founded Ally house which helps Oklahoma children who are diagnosed with cancer. Later he kept the foundation name after one of his band member’s daughters as she died because of cancer, it was named Allison Webb.

We hope that he wins the battle against cancer, everyone’s prayers are with him.
