Pop superstar Taylor Swift is helping out a Nashville record store closed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Grimey’s co-owner Doyle Davis said Thursday the store got a call last week from Swift’s publicist asking how Swift could help. It was the just after Nashville’s mayor issued a stay-at-home order and Davis was sending all the employees home.


The store, which also serves as a small concert venue, has been a Nashville fixture for 20 years, working closely with local record labels and many up-and-coming artists.


Swift’s donation will provide direct relief to the store’s 10 full-time employees and three months of the health care costs for the store’s group insurance plan.

“It was completely out of the blue,” Davis said. “It gives me a sense of security, knowing we are solid. …Now I know my people are taken care of.”

Davis said he has never seen Swift in the store but her publicist assured him she has purchased records there. RGA
