Detroit’s own [lastfm]Kid Rock[/lastfm] pays homage to his hometown, with the release of his new Born Free CD, which will hit store shelves on November 16th. Kid gave us a taste of his newly penned music, last month at DTE, playing 6 of the new cuts during the 3 sold out shows!
No ‘parental warning’ sticker necessary on Born Free, which Kid tells MTV News is “transformational“, and was inspired by the economic decline here in his Motor City hometown. Kid say’s “The catalyst for this record was Detroit, and my thoughts on the world through the lens of Detroit,” Rock went on to say, “Watching everything go downhill over the past few years, the economy, the loss of jobs everywhere, I wanted to make a record that reflected the times but that still had soul.“
Those like me, who attended the recent shows at DTE, already got a little taste of a few of the new tracks, like “Times Like These,” “Rock On” and “Feels Good To Me” …..all which left me hungry for MORE!
For country fans like us, this much-anticipated follow-up to “Rock & Roll Jesus” feature collaborations with several other country artists, including [lastfm]Trace Adkins[/lastfm], [lastfm]Sheryl Crow[/lastfm], [lastfm]Martina McBride[/lastfm], [lastfm]Bob Seger[/lastfm] and [lastfm]Zac Brown Band[/lastfm] !
