It’s hard to be everything to everyone, unless you’re Kid Rock. Embodying most genres of American music, Kid has long possessed a sprawling crossover appeal that refuses to be niched. When the Detroit renaissance man first burst into the public eye in the ‘90s with his rap-metal fusion, toting an Uncle Kracker and slinging rhymes with the Insane Clown Posse, nobody imagined he’d someday be hosting the CMT Music Awards … and winning one too. Making music that plays just as well in northern Michigan as it does in southern Alabama—and singing duets with Sheryl Crow, Metallica, and Hank Williams Jr. along the way—is a fedora/trucker/ten-gallon hat trick that few artists can pull off, but Kid Rock continues to make it look effortless.
On tour touting his latest album, Rebel Soul, the Detroit cowboy and his longtime rhythm section, the Twisted Brown Trucker band, unleash a wealth of genre-jumping monster hits. From the Warren Zevon–Lynyrd Skynyrd mash-up of “All Summer Long” to new jams such as “Cucci Galore” and the troop-saluting twang of “Let’s Ride,” Rock’s rock/rap/country concert rivets like a radio with a runaway dial. Fellow rap-rockers Buckcherry, known for serrated hits such as “Sorry” and the lascivious smash “Crazy Bitch,” contribute ruthless crunch and unapologetic sleaze in its opening set, and Nevada trio Hellbound Glory kick off the night with a blend of blue-collar country and Nirvana-esque distortion.
