Kid Rock and Steve Smith, Nashville’s Lower Broadway honkytonk kingpin, have announced they will match all “tips” made through live performances beginning at noon on April 15, and streamed on Facebook pages for Tootsies Orchid Lounge, Kid Rock’s Big Ass Honky Tonk, Honky Tonk Central, Rippy’s Honky Tonk, as well as the Facebook page and website of Honky Tonk School for 72 hours.
“Just like playing in the clubs, our musicians make their living from the tips they received from our patrons so we are encouraging people to tip them during these performances,” says Smith. “These musicians love to perform and entertain, so just like the rest of America, they are going stir crazy not being able to perform for the people. This is just a way to get them performing again and hopefully bringing some happiness into the homes of those that would rather be on Broadway during this time.”
“Like most of us, I am a big supporter of all musicians and especially for those who work hard for the Honky Tonk Godfather and myself,” says Kid Rock. “These guys and gals work for us everyday. A lot of them you know. So listen, any tips you donate during the live stream are appreciated, but over the next 72 hours will be matched by my Big Ass Honky Tonk, Tootsies Orchid Lounge, Rippy’s and Honky Tonk Central. Thank you and stay safe.”
Tootsies Orchid Lounge, Rippy’s, Honky Tonk Central, Kid Rock’s Big Ass Honky Tonk & Steakhouse and The Diner have continued to pay their employees since Mayor Cooper issued all bars to close in downtown Nashville due to social distancing laws amidst the COVID-19 crisis. Honky Tonk School has organized this effort to help musicians make ends meet until the bars open and they can go back to entertaining in person.

This is one of my favorite songs since I was young. It was written by Mike Settle and Kenny Rogers had a big hit with it in the late 60’s. Me and a few of my band members did this very quickly in my studio years ago. I thought it would be a nice tribute to Kenny. Rest in peace Gambler.

Kelly Kozole has been a partner and friend to the Kid Rock organization for nearly 20 years. Just recently, Kelly shared the news that her daughter, Morgan, has a rare disease called BPAN Syndrome. It is a genetic disorder that affects the nervous system and progressively worsens with age. There are only 500 reported cases of BPAN in the entire world and there is very little research being done.
Please help Morgan on Rare Disease Day
In case anyone was wondering what a “Everything offends me, complete pussy, snowflake ass millennial” looks like, here he is!
You have big opinions on the internet buddy but I bet you would cry like a bitch and call an attorney if I saw you in person and smacked you right in your ear for poppin' that shit!
You're welcome for just making you relevant for 15 minutes. Now crawl back to your computer and enjoy your “woke” - sad existence at any attempt to be relevant, or a man.
(Don't want to waste to much time being mean, but every once in a while you gotta take 2 minutes and call a mother fucker out!)
I am actually sure I would have a lot in common with people like this if we just spent some time together….. But….. I don’t hang out in coffee shops with pegged pants, half groomed beard internet nerds. And I am pretty sure this kid has never gutted an elk, understands conservation or has enjoyed the benefits of real organic grass fed animals on his plate. (Get a hold of me and I would be happy to cook you some and could also tell you what the inside of a vagina feels like.)
I know you far left weirdo’s have it out for me and that’s fine. I know who my friends and fans are. But make no mistake, you will never silence or defeat me, you only throw gas on a fire that will burn your ass in the end. (fyi, I have no problem with most who have different political views or opinions than me - that’s America and I love it.)
At the end of the day I can be an over the top, loud mouth, opinionated mo-fo too, but I really do not wish harm to anyone for there opinions or beliefs….But I am a pretty good word smith with a platform and it’s fun to put it to use from time to time in real life as well as songs! And of course, I do not take shit from anyone!
My post on Kobe was my truth and from the heart.
I am fairly sure I could post that the sun looks beautiful and some fuck-tard would attack me in the media and say I should be banned from something for making lewd, sexual comments about the sun. Ha, Like I would give a fuck!
