Beloved Nashville record store Grimey's was having trouble paying its employees' salaries. Then Taylor Swift intervened
“This assistance from Ms. Swift helps give us a real shot at coming back on the other side of this,” Grimey’s co-owner Doyle Davis says
Rolling Stone’s10 Best Record Stores in Americain 2018. “With its friendly and knowledgeable clerks and a ‘we can get it!’ work ethic, Grimey’s record shop has been filling Nashville music fans’ orders for nearly 20 years,” we wrote. “In the process, it’s landed on the must list for anyone visiting Music City, where a Grimey’s T-shirt is just as coveted as a rare colored-vinyl pressing.”
Swift’s generosity during the coronavirus pandemic has extended well beyond record stores. Twenty of her fans have reported that the pop star has donated $3,000 each to their calls for financial support in the past few weeks. According toNME, photographer Holly Tuner had made a Tumblr post asking for help, and Swift wrote, “Holly, you’ve always been there for me. I want to be there for you right now.” Similarly, Swift reached out to another fan in need, writing, “I saw your post and would love to gift you $3,000 to help with the stress of what’s going on right now.”
Swift, who has donated to Feeding America and World Health Organization and requested her fans support those organizations, has encouraged her fans torespect the CDC guidelinesand stay home. “I’m seeing lots of get-togethers and hangs and parties still happening,” she wrote on Instagram earlier this month. “This is the time to cancel plans, actually truly isolate as much as you can and don’t assume that because you don’t feel sick that you aren’t possibly passing something on to someone elderly or vulnerable to this. It’s a really scary time, but we need to make sacrifices right now.”Read more: Rolling Stone »
