According to Byrd’s Facebook page, the company still hasn’t responded to his requests for more information about Nanette’s termination. But he thanks his fans for their support while also asking that they “please direct questions to the home office,” and not the Cracker Barrel in Corydon, IN where Nanette worked as a retail-manager. Brad writes: “I would like everyone to remember that some very good people work for them. The people at the Corydon location are our friends (like family) and are just trying to make a living.”
