Dierks Bentley has pledged $1,000 each to 90 hourly employees of his Nashville bar, who temporarily lost their jobs due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Bentley's Whiskey Row bar on the SoBro strip in Nashville is closed for the time being.

The country music singer and songwriter announced the bar closure on his social media accounts.

"Just gave last call at @whiskeyrownashville as we close the doors for a while," Bentley said. "My heart goes out to all the guys/girls down on Lower Broad. Feels like yesterday that it was me down there working for tips."

"I am going to immediately give each of our 90 hourly employees $1,000 to help in the short run as our community and country try to get a handle on the situation," he added.

The 44-year-old musician called on all bar owners on Lower Broadway to take care of their bartenders, bar backs, waitresses, security, and dishwashers "the best they can."

"Lower Broadway is the heartbeat of Nashville," according to him.
