About Kid Rock

Kid Rock's genre-spanning sound incorporates a wide variety of musical styles and influences, ranging from classic rock and hip-hop to country." Rock's earliest exposure to music was via the classic rock and country albums of his parents. As rap and hip-hop gained mainstream prominence during the 1980s, Kid Rock was influenced by Beastie Boys, Run-D.M.C., and Too $hort, who went on to produce Rock's first album. In 1999, he became friends with Hank Williams, Jr..

In 2001, Kid Rock released the follow up, Cocky. After a slow start, his country-flavored hit "Picture" with Sheryl Crow resurrected the album and it went gold as a single and pushed the album's sales to more than 5 million. It was followed by 2003's self-titled release, which failed to chart a major hit. In 2006 he released Live Trucker , a live album. In 2007 Kid Rock released Rock N Roll Jesus, which produced a hit in "All Summer Long." It was his first worldwide smash hit, charting #1 in eight countries across Europe and Australia.
