Kid Rock gives away the game in his album titles, making it plain on 2015's First Kiss that he's taking a sepia-tinted look back at his past, thinking back fondly to lost love and old tunes. In short, he's tapping into the nostalgia that coursed through his last big hit, 2008's "All Summer Long," and turning it into a full album. Generally, this means leaning hard on his longstanding Bob Seger infatuation and ratcheting up the country inclinations that turned a little too stuffy on the Rick Rubin-produced Born Free.
Rebel Soul is Kid Rock's ninth studio album and sixth studio album with Atlantic Records. The album was released on November 19, 2012. Kid Rock is the producer on the album and Twisted Brown Trucker returns after Rick Rubin placed in an all-star band for 2010's Born Free. "Redneck Paradise" was written by The Young Brothers in 2007; they sent it to Kid Rock's representatives hoping he'd use the song.
Rock am Ring (Rock at Ring) is a rock music festival held annually in Germany at the Nürburgring racetrack. It is the largest music festival in Germany and one of the largest in Europe.
By the age of 11 Kid Rock was already in a band, rapping for The Furious Funkers and DJing parties at High School. Later he joined The Beast Crew and by 17 he had signed a record deal, albeit without the members of his band.
The Story Of Rock And Roll would not be complete without a heavy dose of Jerry Lee Lewis. Is there an early rock & roller who has a crazier reputation than the Killer, Jerry Lee Lewis? His exploits as a piano-thumping, egocentric wild man with an unquenchable thirst for living have become the fodder for numerous biographies, film documentaries, and a full-length Hollywood movie. Certainly few other artists came to the party with more ego and talent than he and lived to tell the tale. And certainly even fewer could successfully channel that energy into their music and prosper doing it as well as Jerry Lee.
