“She wanted to say hi to you.”
Imagine shopping with a celebrity- that’s what customers at Save A Lot in Lexington got to do when Gary Levox lead singer of Raschal Flatts made a stop at the store
Levox met with fans, took pictures, signed autographs.
“I found out that it was true and I was like, I gotta come get him to sign this thing…I never expected him to come to Lexington of all places," one fan said.

“We're very excited," said two young fans.
“Well, I thought that was pretty cool. And he was really nice and warm and gave me a big hug…this is the most exciting thing that’s happened in Lexington in a long time," said another fan.
"The crowd that's here, the excitement that's here, the smiles.

During his visit Levox gave some shoppers store gift cards, "I just love community and I love Save A Aot and we partnered up to come out and bless some people with some money today and just help out in the community," he said.

“We are we have our food pantry open every Thursday. Last week, we served 111. Families, and that's a typical Thursday, running between 100 to, what, some Thursdays, 130," Charlotte Hollis and Alba Crockett said.
Levox donation is also going to make the holidays special for about 150 families. They will receive boxes with all of the ingredients for a classic holiday meal.

“That's been the most fun, just been able to hang out and help somebody with some groceries today," Levox said.
