Earlier this year Kid Rock announced that he had signed with Broken Bow Records in Nashville.
Kid has been part of the country scene for at least 15 years or more. That’s about the time he met Hank Jr. and they did one of the first Crossroads on CMT.
Since then Kid has made a few appearances on the country charts. But he’s never been one to go fully into the country world.
When he announced the new record deal he also put out two new songs. They both were good, but not really the kind that you would think would do well at country radio.
The one, Po Dunk, certainly the lyrical content other than a few vulgarities.
But now his latest single could be the next proper country radio release for Kid.
Tennessee Mountain Top – Kid Rock
Earlier this year Kid Rock was on the Big Interview with Dan Rather. It was a good episode. Dan got Kid to open up about some things. And Kid performed a little snippet of this song on the show.
He wasn’t sure if he would release the song. It was a bit of a mystery, but here we are.
Kid still seems a bit hung up on the time he spent in LA. A little bit like he’s thinking about his time with Pamela Anderson. She might have been the angel in California.
But I could be completely wrong on that one.
This is a good song. It’s more country than a lot of what’s going on in Nashville right now, but I think there’s a place for this at country radio.
