Kid Rock Pays Off Strangers' Layaway Balances

Newser — Newser Editors

Tyler Perry may have started a celebrity trend, and it's a pretty good one. After Perry paid off the layaway balances of Walmart customers in Atlanta, Kid Rock decided he'd do the same in Nashville.

The musician gave $81,000 to his local store, enough to wipe out the balances of 350 accounts, reports TMZ. Happy customers were being given cards explaining the generosity, notes the Tennessean.

"He bought my son his first guitar," one tells the newspaper. Kid Rock made a point to credit Perry for the "great idea" in a tweet.

(This man found a wallet, then returned it in the best possible way.)
