Kid Rock Donates $100K to Barstool Sports’ Small Business COVID Relief Fund
As the pandemic continues, local businesses have been greatly impacted, resulting in closures for good while others struggle to remain afloat. Kid Rock is doing his part to help out and has just chipped in $100,000 to The Barstool Fund, a small business fundraiser started by the popular sports blog Barstool Sports.
The rap-rock/country star shared this news of his donation on Twitter, where he exclaimed, "THIS IS THE AMERICA I LOVE!" His pledge to help small businesses also came with a message of hope that others in a position to offer a sizable donation will do so as well. "Put me down for [$]100k," he wrote, urging, "And I only post this in hopes others as blessed as me may be moved to help out."

Earlier this year, Kid Rock's Big Ass Honky Tonk & Rock and Roll Steakhouse in Nashville, Tenn. was impacted by coronavirus restrictions set by local government. The restaurant was stripped of its beer permit after being found to be in violation of public health safety protocols. The steakhouse had also refused to comply with state-ordered closures in March, which preceded the violating offenses.
