Kid Rock is actually getting into the holiday spirit.
Inspired by Tyler Perry’s not bad deed, the 47-year-old “Only God Knows Why” singer paid $81,000 to clear off the balances of 350 layaway accounts at a Walmart store in Nashville, Tennessee, WBIR reports. On Friday after the Nobody’s Fool director dropped over $430,000 to pay off layaway items in Atlanta stores, Rock took to Twitter to share which he also wanted to pay the item forward, as well as do the same.
“@tylerperry Great idea! I followed your lead as well as paid off the layaway at my local Walmart in Nashville,” the rock star tweeted. “Merry Christmas as well as God Bless You!”
According to the Nashville store’s manager, Tom Meyer, the musician called the store on Friday morning, explaining which he wanted to spread some holiday cheer. Rock’s manager later came in as well as made the generous payment.
Perry started out the trend on Thursday, when he shared the exciting news with the shoppers at two Walmart locations in Georgia.
“I have paid for all of your layaways for Christmas. So Merry Christmas to everybody,” he said in a video he posted on Twitter. “You got to go into the Walmart, get your layaway as well as pay a penny, one penny, as well as you get your layaway. I know the item’s hard times as well as a lot of people are struggling. I’m just actually, actually grateful to be able to be in a position to do This particular. So, God bless you. Go get your stuff.”
