Kid Rock was clearly feeling the Christmas spirit last week.

The singer decided to help out working families in Nashville, Tennessee, on Friday.

After seeing the news that comedian Tyler Perry had paid off over $400,000 of layaway orders for families, Kid Rock decided to do a similar kind deed.

He paid off 350 layaway accounts at a Nashville Walmart, totaling some $81,000, as area news outlets are reporting.

When Kid Rock saw that Perry had donated, he tweeted at him — letting the comedian know that he inspired the singer,

@tylerperry Great idea! I followed your lead and paid off the layaway at my local Walmart in Nashville. Merry Christmas and God Bless You,” he wrote.

Kid Rock even created a number of Christmas cards with a handwritten message for the customers who went to go pay their layaways — not realizing he had taken care of everything for them.

The cards read, “Merry Christmas from your neighbor! — Kid Rock.”

Walmart shoppers were thrilled to find out Kid Rock had taken care of their tabs.

One mother, Autumn Nuccio, thanked him on Twitter for his generous actions.

@KidRock We were gonna have to give up our kids’ Christmas this year because we needed to pay rent but now, because of you, our babies will have a good Christmas!! So thank you so much!!” she wrote.

Henrietta Lewis was also thrilled her four-year-old grandchild’s gifts were taken care of for her; she said, “I just want him to know that I’m very grateful that he [has] done this for the community. I love you, Kid Rock. Keep up the good work.”

Perhaps this will help some on the Left feel better about Kid Rock, since he’s a staunch supporter of President Donald Trump.

During a recent appearance on “Fox & Friends,” he made it clear he is a fan of the president’s agenda.

“I think the president’s doing a great job with his policies,” he said.

“It’s so hard for people to get past [the idea] that we can disagree and still be cordial with one another.”

“I wish, you know, I heard you earlier in a bumper asking people what was their biggest concern, and mine would be just, you know, the division in the country right now.”

“It’s so hard for people just to get past [the idea] that we can disagree and still be cordial with one another,” he added.

Kid Rock also flirted with the idea of running for the Senate in his home state of Michigan as a Republican in 2018.

But ultimately he decided against it.
