Morgan Wallen has completed his $500,000 donation pledge to Black-led groups, Fox News Digital can confirm.

Wallen pledged $100,000 to the National Museum of African American Music in Nashville earlier this month, the country music star’s manager Seth England told Fox News Digital.

The “Sand In My Boots” singer donated $300,000 to the Black Music Action Coalition (BMAC). $135,000 of the $300,000 was redistributed to other organizations by the BMAC, according to USA Today. Another $100,000 went to Rock Against Racism via Big Loud Records, the outlet reported.

Wallen made headlines in February after a video surfaced of him using the N-word.
