Country Star’s Nashville Store Vandalized

Thousands of dollars are being offered for information leading up to the identification and capture of the criminals that destroyed part of this Nashville storefront this weekend (November 3rd, 2018).

It happened around 1:30 a.m. local time and four people stormed onto the property in an attempt to remove one of the major decorations that play into the shop’s namesake – and a treasured part of this country star’s dream.

The Tribe Kelley Trading Post, owned by Brian Kelley and wife Brittney, has been a very unique new addition to the Hillsboro Village area of Nashville and has only been open a short time now. But the collaboration from this husband and wife has been a dream of theirs for much longer.

Kelley, who is one half of supersonic country music duo Florida Georgia Line, has been working hard on the store and all the products they are featuring – including their custom denim line.

In the early morning hours of Saturday, November 3rd, 2018, four vandals encroached upon the Tribe Kelley Trading Post in an attempt to remove the traditional-styled teepee featured prominently on the property.

Captured all on surveillance video, the footage shows these four people approached the teepee from the sidewalk and took it apart with precision and careful examination – making it appear that this might have been planned or, at the very least, well thought-out.

Kelley and his wife are offering a $5,000 reward to anyone who can provide substantial information that leads to the identification and arrest of these individuals seen in the video.

On top of the reward, Brian Kelley has posted a lengthy statement on social media giving a warning to those who took part in this crime:

“Nashville tribe let’s band together and find these people. You think you can come on our property and do this? Nope, that’ll be the last time. Chief Kelley on patrol now baby.”
