Kid Rock pays for families’ layaway items at Nashville Walmart, spends $81k

His name maybe KIIIIIIIIID Rock,  but some may call him Santa after his recent generous move.

Musician Kid Rock paid off the remaining balance for a number of families’ layaway items at a Nashville, Tennessee Walmart.

Rock, whose real name is Robert James Ritchie, announced his generous move on Twitter Friday.

Rock said he was inspired by actor and filmmaker Tyler Perry who did the same thing when he paid more than $400,000 at two Walmarts in Perry’s native Georgia.

The families, when they learned of the generosity, were overjoyed. One customer even stated that the act helped restore their faith in humanity.

“God is good. People are still good. This just means the world to me.”
