Kid Rock Announces Country-fied New Album and 2018 Tour Dates
Kid Rock has announced the release of a new album that he recorded in Nashville, and it will be accompanied by a string of headlining tour dates in 2018.
The Detroit-based rocker and sometime country singer is set to release Sweet Southern Sugar on Nov. 3 via BBR Music Group in Nashville. The new album features “Greatest Show on Earth” and “Po-Dunk,” which the outspoken rapper and singer teased over the summer, as well as his most recent single, “Tennessee Mountain Top." Sweet Southern Sugar marks the first time Kid Rock has completed an album in Nashville, and according to a press release, the music on the project "ranges from country to classic rock, with a little rap sprinkled in between and highlights Kid Rock’s armory of talent, which transcends a single genre."
Other song titles on the forthcoming album include country-sounding titles "Raining Whiskey" and "Grandpa's Jam," as well as "American Rock N' Roll," "Back to the Otherside" and more.
Kid Rock will follow the release of Sweet Southern Sugar with a tour billed as the Greatest Show on Earth Tour 2018, which launches on Jan. 19, 2018, at Bridgestone Arena in Nashville and comprises 21 shows all over the U.S. The new shows will feature his classic high-energy rock and rap hits along with tracks from the new record.
