About Kid Rock
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 86,893 attendees in six sold-out shows. Sweet Southern Sugar, Kid Rock's 11th studio album, is keeping him on the road as he's just launched another batch of U.S. tour dates booked for the back half of 2018. The “Red Blooded Rock n Roll Redneck Extravaganza” with Brantley Gilbert and Wheeler Walker Jr. will hit 14 cities. Sweet Southern Sugar is Kid Rock’s first album recorded in Nashville and features singles “Tennessee Mountain Top,” “Po-Dunk,” and “American Rock n Roll.” 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.
About Uncle Kracker
No matter what he does or where he goes, Uncle Kracker adheres to a simple, yet rather timeless philosophy. “I really subscribe to this mindset of just having fun. Each time we go on stage, I want people to leave smiling." That outlook has served him well over the years. 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. Throughout, he played sold out shows across the country and appeared everywhere from the American Country Music Awards to Late Night with Conan O'Brien
