PIKEVILLE, Ky. (LEX 18) — Country singer Tyler Childers had a successful run at the Appalachian Wireless Arena in Pikeville over the New Year's holiday. That success didn't stop the singer from pitching in to help after the crowds cleared out.

Larry R. Miller snapped a photo of the Grammy-nominated artist with a broom cleaning up the expo center's floor alongside other workers.

"FYI....if you weren’t a fan before you need to be now! The guy with the broom helping The Appalachian Wireless Arena Cleaning Crew is none other than Tyler Childers himself. I love this kid after 3 days," read a social media post by Miller.

Childers performed three shows at the arena. He was born in Lawrence County and moved to Painstville, Ky. in his teens.
