Bryson Tiller Restores Louisville Basketball Court

Bryson Tiller is out to show that anything is possible.

Months after announcing his Nike partnership, Pen Griffey and the apparel giant have teamed up to restore a basketball court in his hometown of Louisville.

On Wednesday (June 7), the chart-topping crooner was on hand for a ribbon cutting ceremony at Wyandotte Park, where children from the community received three hours of basketball clinics on the fully-refurbished court.

The b-ball court also has a message for the kids in the community: “It’s Possible Here.” It’s this message that helped Tiller find success outside of his hometown.

“Whenever you fly into Louisville, you see a sign that says, ‘It’s Possible Here.’ I remember my first time seeing it,” he explained. “I was working on my debut album, and I just thought, ‘Wow, it is possible here.’ Everybody always thinks you have to move out of the city and go where the music industry is, but it’s possible in Louisville, and it’s possible anywhere. You just have to believe.”

Aside from spending time with the children at the ribbon-cutting event, Tiller signed white-on-white Air Force 1s for those who attended. He also performed in his hometown on the final night of his “Trapsoul Series,” a short run of concerts ahead of his “Set It Off Tour.”

Currently, Bryson is sitting at the top of the Billboard 200 with his sophomore album, True to Self. He also recently collaborated with Rihanna on DJ Khaled’s upcoming Grateful single, “Wild Thoughts.”
