NASHVILLE — Kid Rock paid off the layaway tabs for 350 customers at a Walmart in Nashville, Tennessee.
The singer paid off all of the remaining layaway balances at the Dickerson Pike Walmart, the store said, “bringing incredible joy to about 350 families in Nashville.”
Kid Rock said he was inspired by actor and filmmaker Tyler Perry, who recently paid off more than $430,00 in layaways at an Atlanta Walmart.
“Great idea!” he wrote in a tweet to Perry. “I followed your lead and paid off the layaway at my local Walmart in Nashville. Merry Christmas and God Bless You!”
In recent weeks, anonymous good Samaritans have paid off layaway items in four Walmart stores in different parts of the country — a total of more than $130,000.
@tylerperry Great idea! I followed your lead and paid off the layaway at my local Walmart in Nashville. Merry Christmas and God Bless You!
