Florida Georgia Line is taking Dierks Bentley’s lead. The duo, who also run the Nashville restaurant and bar FGL House in addition to being music superstars, announced on Wednesday (March 18) that they are also helping all 117 of their FGL House employees by giving them $1,000 each while the restaurant is closed in accordance with Nashville mayor John Cooper’s recommendation that Nashville restaurants close to help stop the spread of COVID-19.
FGL’s Tyler Hubbard thanked Dierks Bentley for being generous to his staff at Nashville’s Whiskey Row. “You inspired us, man. We are going to follow suit, we are going to take your lead and we are going to do the same thing. We are going to give $1,000 to all the FGL House employees. We hope this helps out in a time of need.
“We very, very vividly remember what it’s like to be in the service industry, to be a server, to be a bartender and to rely on tips to pay the bills,” Hubbard added. “We know everybody is a probably a little stressed out during this time so we hope this can help you guys out.”
FGL’s Brian Kelley added, “We are so grateful for everybody that helps make our restaurant run, every single person, barbacks, waiters, waitresses, bartenders.”
Bentley posted on social media on March 16 that he planned to give $1,000 to each of his employees at Whiskey Row Nashville as the restaurant closes temporarily, to comply with the recommendation from Nashville’s mayor John Cooper.
