VIDEO: Live version of “Born Free” – and betting new Kid Rock music will be huge

When Kid Rock’s new album “Born Free” comes out this Tuesday, it has #1 written all over it.   Straight to the top, and may be the biggest selling album of the year. 

Whatta you say about that Taylor Swift?

The evolution of Rock from teen DJ and rapper to the closest thing the classic rock and roll sound has to a savior has been a 20-year process.  Country, rock and top 40 radio all accept him like no other performer.  And “Born Free” is his work with the legendary producer Rick Rubin (Tom Petty, Johnny Cash, Beastie Boys,  Avett Borthers, Dixie Chicks).    The band included  Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer and fellow Detroiter Chad Smith, Benmont Tench from Tom Petty’s Heartbreakers on keyboards and Los Lobos’ David Hidalgo on guitar. Bob Seger plays piano on a track. Martina McBirde, Zac Brown and T.I. all guest.

Biggest of the year…I’m just sayin’.
