Kid Rock has gotten into the Christmas spirit this year. The Rock/Country artist is taking the time to pay it forward. Taking the lead from Director/Actor Tyler Perry, who picked two Walmart’s in Georgia to pay off all their layaways, Kid chose a Walmart in Nashville to do the same.
After word got out, Tyler, who was trying to remain anonymous, ended up confirming that he was indeed paying off all layaways at two Walmart stores.
“If you have a layaway at either lace and it was int there as of 9:30 this morning (on Dec. 6). I have paid for all of your layaways for Christmas. So Merry Christmas to everybody,” Tyler said in a video on social media. “I know it’s hard times, a lot of people are struggling, I’m just really, really grateful to be in a position to do this. So God bless you. Go get your stuff. Merry Christmas.”

Kid Rock saw Tyler’s good deed and loved the idea. He loved it so much that he went and did the same thing at a local Walmart in Nashville. Taking to Twitter, Kid thanked Tyler for the idea.
” @tylerperry Great idea! I followed your lead and paid off the layaway at my local Walmart in Nashville. Merry Christmas and God Bless You!,” Kid Rock wrote in a Tweet.
Kid Rock paid off the balances of about $81,000 for all layaway accounts at the Walmart located at 3458 Dickerson Pike store “Kudos to Kid Rock for making such a gesture in our community,” store manager Tom Meyer told USA Today. “I think that’s a pretty Nashville proud moment.”
We do too! Merry Christmas!
