NASHVILLE – Musician Kid Rock is spreading the Christmas cheer by paying off the balances of 350 layaway accounts at a Walmart store.

WRCB reported that Rock, whose real name is Robert James Ritchie, gave a Walmart in Nashville $81,000 to pay down all of the accounts.

“Kudos to Kid Rock for making such a gesture in our community,” Meyer said. “I think that’s a pretty Nashville proud moment.”

Rock reportedly called the store Friday and set the payment up and his manager made the payments at the store later that day.

Rock posted to Twitter that he was following director Tyler Perry’s lead after Perry paid off layaway balances at two stores in Georgia.
