In a tweet sent out Monday night (March 16), Dierks Bentley announced he has shut down his bar at 400 Broadway in downtown Nashville for the time being.
“Just gave last call at Whiskey Row Nashville as we close the doors for a while,” Bentley tweeted. “My heart goes out to all the guys/girls down on Lower Broad. Feels like yesterday that was me down there working for tips.”
But because he is a true class act, he added in that tweet that he gave each of the bar’s 90 hourly employees $1,000 to help in the short run while they are unable to work.
“Lower Broadway is the heartbeat of Nashville,” he said. “Let’s make sure we help the folks that help make the music happen.”
