Brad Paisley’s performance during Live Nation’s “Live at the Drive-In” concert series in Nashville last weekend has helped raise $26,000 for Paisley’s free grocery store, The Store. The show in Nashville was livestreamed for free on his Facebook page.
While watching the livestream, fans had the opportunity to donate to The Store. Paisley wrote on Instagram, “I’m told that those of you who hit the tip jar on our [Facebook] live broadcast from the Nashville show raised 26k for [The Store, Nashville]!! Thank you! I know these are trying times, thank you for helping to feed people. #liveatthedrivein.”
Paisley and his wife, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, started The Store, which serves customers in need for a one-year period as they work toward self-sufficiency after they were inspired by Unity Shoppe in Santa Barbara, California. The Store opened in March 2020 and quickly began serving three times the number of customers they expected due to the tornadoes in Nashville that month and the coronavirus pandemic.
