I know that a lot of people will dispute Kid Rock being country. I must say that I was a bit skeptical at first to. He seems like such a tough rocker with a not so clean image. Once I started doing a little bit a research and looking into who Kid Rock really is I think that Kid Rock is MORE country than most of our main stream county artists on the radio today!
I can feel the strong comments streaming in now……but I am ready for them! I love Kid Rock – and think he would find a good home in country music.
A special thanks to Meg for sending us this link from CMT on Kid Rocks upcoming album:
Kid Rock has teamed with producer Rick Rubin for the follow up to 2007’s double-platinum Rock N Roll Jesus, according to Billboard magazine. Rubin’s credits include projects with the Beastie Boys, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and the Dixie Chicks, along with Johnny Cash’s American Recordings series. Although Kid Rock says he has 18 to 20 songs ready for the album, no release date has been announced. He also said his band is rehearsing some of the new material at his concert sound checks in case he decides to introduce it to his set list. Kid Rock won a CMT Music Award on June 16 for his video, “All Summer Long.”
