I used to be a bartender/waitress, so I know the stress of living paycheck to paycheck..

..Well Dierks Bentley has stepped up the game and is helping out the employees of his bar during this stressful time.

Dierks took to social media Monday to pledge that he is giving all of his employees an extra $1,000 during this time of crisis while the bar is shut down due to coronavirus.

WOWWWWWWW! As if I couldn't love you more Dierks..

Diving into his own pocket for his employees, Dierks said this money is "to help in the short run as our community and country try to get a handle on the situation."

Dierks decided that the bar in the heart of Whiskey Row on Lower Broadway in Nashville will be closed for a while to help reduce the spread of coronavirus.

This comes after new coronavirus protocols suggests reducing your contact in a group to ten or less.
