Kid Rock

Robert James "Bob" Ritchie (born January 17, 1971) known by his stage name Kid Rock, is an American musician, rapper and singer-songwriter. He is popularly known for his first commercial success, the 1998 studio album Devil Without a Cause which sold 13 million albums. He is a five time Grammy Award nominee and has sold 27 million albums worldwide.

Born in Romeo, Michigan, Rock was a rapper and hip hop performer releasing several albums between 1990 and 1996. After signing a recording contract with Atlantic Records in 1998, he gained commercial success in the rap-rock genre. In 2000, he released The History of Rock, a compilation of remixed and remastered versions of songs from previous albums as well as the hit single, "American Bad Ass".

Rock's follow-up records became more rock, country, and blues orientated and were met with mixed reviews. His collaboration with Sheryl Crow on the song "Picture" was his last hit until the release of the 2007 album Rock n Roll Jesus. The album featured the song "All Summer Long" which charted at No. 1 in eight countries across Europe and Australia. In 2010, he released Born Free which featured the eponymous song that was the political campaign theme of Mitt Romney, the Republican nominee for President of the United States in the 2012 election.

Rock released Rebel Soul on November 19, 2012. The lead single, "Let's Ride", is dedicated to the United States military.

Famous quotes containing the words rock and/or kid:

    Amongst the learned the lawyers claim first place, the most self-satisfied class of people, as they roll their rock of Sisyphus and string together six hundred laws in the same breath, no matter whether relevant or not, piling up opinion on opinion and gloss on gloss to make their profession seem the most difficult of all. Anything which causes trouble has special merit in their eyes.
    Desiderius Erasmus (c. 1466–1536)
