Detroit’s own Kid Rock dropped his new album yesterday, “Born Free.” If you caught any of the MLB playoffs on TBS this season you’ve more than likely heard the title track already. Rock also gave his hometown a glimpse of the album when he performed this summer at Pine Knob. The entire album was streaming free before yesterday’s release, but can now be purchased in most major outlets. (However, you won’t find it on iTunes, an outlet Rock hasn’t completely warmed up to yet. The Beatles joined iTunes yesterday which was a big deal if you didn’t notice.)
Rock revealed on VH1 that a tour to promote the album will more than likely take place next year sometime after his birthday. Dates for the tour have been announced including a birthday bash on January 15th to be held at Ford Field. If Rock’s latest Halloween Party offers any indications, the birthday bash will likely be pretty crazy.
Mistress Carrie from Boston’s Rock Station WAAF 97.7/107.3 dropped in for the fun.
11/16/10 also marked the 10th anniversary of the passing of Joe C.
RIP 11/9/1974 – 11/16/2000
