Pais­ley breaks ground on free gro­cery shop

The Tribune (SLO) - - Espresso -

Coun­try star Brad Pais­ley took the con­trols of a back­hoe to dig up the first pile of dirt in the space that will be­come a free gro­cery store to sup­port needy fam­i­lies in Nashville, Ten­nessee.

Pais­ley donned a cow­boy hat-shaped con­struc­tion hel­met for part of Wed­nes­day’s ground­break­ing cer­e­mony for The Store, which is a part­ner­ship with his alma mater Bel­mont Univer­sity.

The coun­try star and his wife, ac­tress Kim­berly Wil­liams-Pais­ley, said they got the idea after vol­un­teer­ing with their kids at a sim­i­lar store called the Unity Shoppe in Santa Bar­bara, Cal­i­for­nia. Con­struc­tion on the Nashville store is pro­jected to be com­pleted by the end of the year.
