Billy Currington partnered with the group Key West Cares, which was founded by residents of the Florida Keys to aid victims of the hurricane.

The group loaded 7,000 pounds of goods -- ranging from generators to roofing supplies -- in a vintage DC-3 aircraft.

Currington and the coordinator of the Key West organization flew to the Bahamas to oversee the distribution of the supplies.

Key West Cares says it has delivered 20 tons of supplies to the Bahamian people.

Currington filmed the video for his hit song "People Are Crazy" on Green Turtle Cay, which was hit hard by the storm.
