The owner of Kid Rock’s Big Ass Honky Tonk Rock N’ Roll Steakhouse in Nashville recently declared that he is refusing to follow Mayor John Cooper’s plan to close all bars in the city’s tourist-heavy Lower Broadway during the Wuhan flu pandemic. Following the publication of a video of a packed bar quickly going viral, the Metro Board of Health greenlight a plan to shut down all bars in Davidson County, including Kid Rock’s bar in downtown Nashville.
The Tennessee Department of Health reported 39 cases of the Wuhan flu in Tennessee with 17 coming from Davidson County alone.
Popculture.com reported that Steve Smith, the owner of the bar in Kid Rock’s name, as well as The Diner and Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, said he will not comply with the rule until a statewide mandate is enacted. Smith described the action as “unconstitutional.”
“Unless there’s a statewide mandate that directs all bars and restaurants to be closed, the request made by Mayor Cooper is unconstitutional as he is targeting a select group of businesses,” Smith said in a statement. “We are compassionate with those who have contracted the COVID-19 coronavirus and all who are helping manage the crisis as the entire world addresses the outbreak. However, a Tootsie’s patron as immediate as last night, mentioned having lived through the polio epidemic and didn’t recall such extreme measures being handed down in history.”
Cooper’s plan also established new limits on restaurant capacity, limiting seating to less than 50 percent capacity and placing limits on total occupancy to 100 people. Furthermore, bar service at restaurants was limited to 50 percent capacity with no standing permitted. The Metro Board of Health held an emergency meeting on Sunday afternoon to approve the plan, according to a report from The Tennessean.
These new decisions to restrict restaurant activity came in response to a Twitter user sharing a video of a packed bar in Lower Broadway on Saturday night, even when people were previously advised to self-quarantine due to the Wuhan flu. With over 3 million views, the video immediately went viral.
Celebrities quickly called out this video.
“While the rest of us are trying to be responsible in our homes and get this s— over with, THIS?!” country singer Maren Morris Tweeted. “Broadway, you aren’t a hero for staying open.”

Humanitarian Organization Deploys Field Hospital to New York City
Samaritan’s Purse, a humanitarian aid organization based in North Carolina, announced on March 27, 2020 that they are sending a convoy of trucks carrying one of their Emergency Field Hospitals to New York City.
New York City is the epicenter of the Wuhan virus pandemic in America. Samaritan’s Purse staff is already on the field making preparations and a team of medical personnel, made up of doctors, nurses, and other healthcare specialists, are currently heading to the city.
Right now, New York City hospital are being strained with patients and are running out of beds and ventilators. One hospital is already placing two patients on a single ventilator machine. So far, north of 23,000 people in New York City have the Wuhan virus with the number of new cases nearly doubling every three days.
Samaritan’s Purse plans on adding 68 beds, which includes an ICU and a respiratory care unit.
The organization is also responding to the Wuhan virus crisis in Cremona, Italy, which is the worst affected area outside of United States.
Samaritan’s Purse donated 55,000 masks this week to hospitals and health facilities across North Carolina.
Franklin Graham, the President of the Samaritan’s Purse, declared:
God has called Samaritan’s Purse to rush into crisis areas to save lives and to share the Good News that Jesus Christ paid for our sins on the Cross and rose from the grave to save all who put their faith in Him. No matter where we go, our goal is the same—to be the hands and feet of Jesus, and to share His love with those in need.
Samaritan’s Purse action shows how America’s vigorous civil society is tacking this crisis.
Despite what state worshippers say, America’s civil society is ready to help out.
