A bar on Broadway? Nope. An enormous entertainment venue with live music? Nope.

A grocery store for those in need in Nashville? Yes….that’s what Brad Paisley wanted to do with wife Kimberly to make a difference in their community.

It’s literally called “The Store” and it’s a modern version of a food pantry that is set up like a free grocery store and it’s in partnership with Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee.

“This is a grocery store with dignity for people who have fallen on hard times,” says Paisley, president of The Store’s board of trustees. “All of us are one unforeseen disaster away from rock bottom. It’s nice to think about a place where when that happens to someone, they can use it to get back on their feet.”
