2016 Taste of Country Music Festival Lineup: Kid Rock
It's going to be one crazy party when Kid Rock brings his high-energy stage show to the 2016 Taste of Country Music Festival in June.
The festival is set to take place from June 10-12 in Hunter Mountain, N.Y., and Kid Rock will headline the opening night of the three-day country music and camping event. Kenny Chesney and Jake Owen join Kid Rock as headliners, and fans who attend ToC Fest 2016 will get three whole days and nights of non-stop fun and music from the top performers in the genre.
Kid Rock first rose to fame as a rapper and rocker, but he brings diverse influences to his music, including classic rock and country. Beginning with his album Cocky in 2001, he has moved his sound more in those directions. He scored a big hit with “Picture,” a country ballad he recorded as a duet with longtime friend Sheryl Crow, and he’s also hit with “All Summer Long,” which borrows extensively from classic rock.
He's one of the most exciting live performers in the business, and Kid Rock will be armed with his biggest hits when he wows the crowd at the 2016 Taste of Country Music Festival on Friday night (June 10).
“Kid Rock’s crossover country has wide appeal and lends itself nicely to the festival, which features every genre of country music,” says Dhruv Prasad, Executive Vice President, Live Events, Townsquare Media Inc. “And without a doubt, his high-energy live performance is second to none — we can’t wait for Kid to take the stage.”
