Kid Rock burst onto the music scene in 1998 with his Devil Without a Cause album and hasn't looked back. From hit singles like “Bawitdaba” and “Cowboy” to “Picture” and “All Summer Long,” the recording artist has blazed his own trail in the music world, having sold over 26 million albums to date. Kid Rock holds the Michigan record for most tickets sold with 150,000 for a run of ten consecutive sold-out shows, and recently set the Little Caesars Arena attendance record in his hometown of Detroit with six sold-out shows. On the heels of this arena success, Kid Rock hit the road in 2018 in support of his first album fully recorded in Nashville, Sweet Southern Sugar, with two hugely successful tours – winter’s American Rock n Roll tour and summer’s Red Blooded Rock n Roll Redneck Extravaganza. The year also saw the release of his first ever greatest hits project Kid Rock Greatest Hits You Never Saw Coming. Kid Rock remains at the center of media attention in regard to his musical and personal ambitions, leaving his mark in a multitude of genres.
In the music industry, there are very few artists who surpass superstar status to become true American icons. Hank Williams Jr. is a founding member of that elite club. Throughout his career, he’s helped shape our country’s cultural landscape with his unbridled creativity, from the gut honesty and unwavering personal convictions. His music not only reflects his own life, but the common experiences that unite us. Hank Jr. has long been the voice of the common man, serving up observations on life and society that have made his fans listen intently and respond with a rousing “Hell Yeah!” as he puts words and music to their thoughts, hopes and everyday life. His music has long been a barometer reflecting both our nation’s challenges and the resilience of the human spirit in such anthems as “A Country Boy Can Survive.” And he managed to perfectly capture the country’s sense of fun and competitive drive every Monday night as he looked into the cameras before ABC’s Monday Night Football and roared “Are You ready for Some Football?” Those words not only won him a legion of new fans during the last decade, they also earned Williams the distinction of being the first country artist to ever to win an Emmy, a feat he repeated 1990 through 1993. Those familiar with Hank Jr.’s legend know it hasn’t been an easy road. Every life and career has its peaks and valleys, but Williams has had more than his share. When he sings “A Country Boy Can Survive,” there’s an authority in his voice, because he’s done just that.
