Kid Rock pays off $81K worth of layaways at Nashville Walmart

Kid Rock is a patriot and a generous man.

A week ago this Sunday Mrs. Marathon Pundit and I ate and drank at his new Nashville club. We try to spend our money with fellow patriots.

From the Tennessean:
Kid Rock paid off the balances of 350 layaway accounts at a Walmart store in Nashville.

The musician gave the 3458 Dickerson Pike store about $81,000 to pay down all of the accounts, said Tom Meyer, the store's manager.

"Kudos to Kid Rock for making such a gesture in our community," Meyer said. "I think that's a pretty Nashville proud moment."
Kid Rock said on Twitter that he was following director Tyler Perry's lead. Perry posted a video on Twitter, saying he had paid off the layaway balances at two Georgia locations.

In today's news is a story that Glenn Beck tried to get some positive publicity, a la Kid Rock, by paying off lay-a-0way balances at a store. Except that the millionaire Beck shelled out a meager $27K. Perhaps his Blaze empire is not doing as well as he wantsa us to believe.
