Kid Rock

We’ve seen a number of musical artists switch genres throughout their career.  Taylor Swift went from country to pop, Darius Rucker went from being Hootie to having a successful country career, and did you know Michael Bolton once opened for Ozzy Osbourne?  Well, the subject of today’s show has also run the gamut of several different styles of music… Kid Rock.  Starting out as a rapper, moving to rock, and now more of a country musician, Kid Rock has been killing it on stage for over 20 years.  He’s not only been in the news for his talented performances, but recently, there’s been some stories that don’t paint the rocker in the best light.  Is Kid Rock simply misunderstood, or are there some racist undertones in his actions?  Did he really go from the trailer park to the limelight?  We’ll dive into these questions and much more on this episode of AHC Podcast.
