Kid Rock reportedly paid off the balances of all layaway accounts at a Walmart store in Nashville, Tenn.

The musician gave the store nearly $81,000 to take care of all of the store’s 350 layaway accounts, Tom Meyer, the manager of the local Walmart, told WBIR on Saturday.

"Kudos to Kid Rock for making such a gesture in our community," Meyer told the local NBC station. "I think that's a pretty Nashville proud moment."

The musician took to Twitter earlier on Friday to say he was following Tyler Perry’s lead “and paid off the layaway at my local Walmart in Nashville.” 

Perry captured headlines earlier this week after he announced on Twitter that he paid down the layaway balances at two Walmart locations in Georgia.

“Great idea!” the musician said in a tweet mentioning Perry. “I followed your lead and paid off the layaway at my local Walmart in Nashville. Merry Christmas and God Bless You!”

Meyer told the local station that the Nashville store had received a call from Kid Rock on Friday morning about paying off the balances. He said the musician’s manager later arrived at the store to make the hefty payment.
