Dierks Bentley opened his fourth Whiskey Row location on Nashville’s Lower Broadway in 2018. However in response to the COVID-19 public health emergency, all bars and restaurants have been ordered closed in the area.
The three-floor Whiskey Row Nashville employs 90 hourly employees, which Dierks is compensating to the tune of $1,000 each. Dierks made the announcement via Instagram , stating, in part: “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 $1000 to help in the short run as our community and country try to get a handle on the situation.”
