NASHVILLE (WKRN) – It looks like Kid Rock is spreading Christmas cheer in Nashville. 

The Walmart on Dickerson Pike posted about it on their Facebook page saying,

“Our store got a call from Kid Rock saying that he wanted to pay off all of our customers’ remaining layaway balances! His gift is bringing incredible joy to about 350 families in Nashville and we’re happy our store could be a part of it.”

The post carried the sweet hashtag #KidRockrocks.

Musician Kid Rock paid off balances for 350 accounts that totaled about $81,000, The Tennessean newspaper reported.

Kid Rock’s announcement came a day after actor and filmmaker Tyler Perry paid off more than $430,000 worth of layaway items at two stores in the Atlanta metro area, CNN reported.

Perry, who tried to make the donation anonymously, he said on Twitter.

“@tylerperry Great idea! I followed your lead and paid off the layaway at my local Walmart in Nashville,” Kid Rock said in a message on Twitter. “Merry Christmas and God Bless You!”

After Kid Rock recently made profane remarks on “Fox & Friends,” he was booted from leading the Nashville Christmas Parade, in which he had volunteered to be the grand marshal, The Associated Press reported.

He’ll participate in a different parade this month.
