Kid Rock, the multi-platinum award-winning American rock ‘n’ roll icon has sold over 26 million albums around the world. The multi-instrumentalist has made hits across genres, from rap and rock in the ‘90s with singles “Bawitdaba” and “Cowboy,” to country with “Picture,” a collaboration with Sheryl Crow that charted No. 4 on the Hot 100. Kid Rock’s 2007 album featuring the song “All Summer Long,” charted at No. 1 in eight countries across Europe and Australia, and the music video received more than 48 million views on YouTube. Kid Rock has consistently released albums since 1990, many of them going platinum and multi-platinum with spots in the Top 10.
After vaulting to stardom as a charismatic presence and chief collaborator in Kid Rock’s Twisted Brown Trucker Band, the Michigan singer, songwriter and performer, also known as Matthew Shafer, kicked off a stunning solo career of his own. His 2000 major label debut, Double Wide, fittingly went double-platinum and yielded #1 smash “Follow Me.” Its 2002 Follow-up No Stranger To Shame reached gold status and spawned cross-format hits such as “In A Little While,” and the powerful cover of Dobie Gray’s “Drift Away,” which set a billboard record for most weeks at #1 on any chart, topping their #1 run on the Adult Contemporary radio charts for a Staggering 28 weeks. Country superstar Kenny Chesney tapped him for “When The Sun Goes Down,” which impressively spent five weeks at #1 on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs Chart. Then, 2012 saw him fully embrace his country side with his critically acclaimed fifth album, Midnight Special. Uncle Kracker is still having a blast, and fans worldwide undoubtedly will too when they see him on the road.
