Kid Rock Goes from Cowboy to Rock n Roll Jesus
Easily the artist's most provocative work to date, the album tackles themes such as race relations, religion in America, and, of course, sex. The album's first single, "So Hott," is racing up the rock radio charts, already hitting the Top 10 with the loving sentiment, "I want to f**k you like I'm never going to see you again." VH1 took the risk of premiering the provocative video this past Saturday on their Top 20 Countdown.
The 12-track collection - which is dedicated to Rock's great friend, the late Atlantic Records co-founder Ahmet Ertegun - stands as a highlight of a musical career marked by constant artistic reinvention and creative growth, confirming Kid Rock's place in the rock 'n' roll pantheon.
The October 9th release will be heralded by a massive promotional blitz - including a series of intimate concerts, packing the arena-sized Kid Rock extravaganza into small venues that will give die-hard fans a chance to see the larger-than-life rocker up close. Confirmed experiences will occur in Cincinnati (Taft Theater), NYC (The Fillmore NY at Irving Plaza), Toronto (Kool Haus), Nashville (Ryman Auditorium), Miami (Fillmore Miami Beach at Jackie Gleason Theater), Atlanta (Tabernacle), San Francisco (Fillmore), Vancouver (Commodore Ballroom), Denver (Paramount Theater), Milwaukee (Eagles Ballroom), and Chicago (Aragon Entertainment Center).
