Taylor Swift is doing something pretty awesome to help a Nashville business stay afloat during the coronavirus crisis. Grimey’s New & Preloved Music had to temporarily close last month due to local stay-at-home orders.


In order to help the business through a tough time, Taylor is donating money to pay all of the stores’ employees, as well as three months of health care. The store was surprised and touched by the singer’s generosity.

“We were very surprised, and I would have to say amazed, that Taylor Swift reached out to us through her publicist to offer some relief during the COVID-19 pandemic,” Grimey’s co-owner Doyle Davis told Rolling Stone.

“I didn’t even know we were on her radar,” he added, “but she really stepped up to help after the recent tornadoes that struck Nashville and middle Tennessee, and now she’s trying to help a beloved small business in her city.”

Grimey’s buyer Will Orman added that the store is “deeply grateful” for Taylor’s gesture. In the meantime, the store has shifted to selling items online. People are apparently eager to support them. “It’s gratifying to see all the online sales,” Doyle said.

What Is Taylor’s Connection To Nashville?

Nashville is an important city in Taylor Swift’s life and career. Her family moved to the area when she was a teenager, and she began pursuing music there. She was discovered by record executive Scott Borschetta in 2005 during a performance at the Bluebird Cafe.

Last month, Taylor donated $1 million to tornado relief in Nashville. “Nashville is my home and the fact that so many people have lost their homes and so much more in Middle Tennessee is devastating to me,” she wrote on Instagram.

Taylor has also been donating $3,000 each to some of her fans who are having a tough time financially during the coronavirus pandemic. She encouraged her followers to stay home and donate to the World Health Organization and Feeding America.
