Kid Rock Mixing Aerosmith With Country On New Album

(Radio.com) Kid Rock will release his tenth studio album First Kiss on Feb. 24. Not much has been known about the release-that is, until now. In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Kid Rock opened up about the album, which will blend "Aerosmith-style rockers" with his country influences.

Rolling Stone reports that the album will highlight his country side with a pedal steel track called "Drinking Beer with Dad," which Rock says is "one of the best songs I've ever written."

Meanwhile, two other songs featured on First Kiss, "Jesus and Bocephus" and "Johnny Cash" pays tribute to country greats Hank Williams Jr. and Johnny Cash. The latter, fittingly titled "Johnny Cash," is a love song that is dedicated to the love between Cash and June Carter Cash.

"Their whole relationship, it's pretty f-ing sweet," he told Rolling Stone. "[It's] coming to a wedding near you!" Read more here.
