Kid Rock will release his eighth studio album, Born Free in November. Born Free is in many ways a transformational album for Kid Rock. While there is still the edge, wit, and swagger of previous albums, he doesn't rap, there's no metal – there isn't even a parental warning sticker. Says Kid Rock, "The catalyst for this record was Detroit, and my thoughts on the world through the lens of Detroit. Watching everything go downhill over the past few years, the economy, the loss of jobs everywhere, I wanted to make a record that reflected the times but that still had soul."

Kid Rock's last album Rock 'N Roll Jesus, released in 2007, debuted at #1 and remained in the charts for 100 weeks, becoming the largest selling Rock album of 2008. His hit single "All Summer Long" hit #1 in eight countries and provided Kid Rock the opportunity to expand his huge touring base outside of the United States. Kid Rock has a unique ability to genre-hop, marking his territory everywhere. He hosted last year's CMT Awards (whose ratings rose 19% over the previous year) and performed at events ranging from the Grammy's to the VMA's, EMA's and CMA's to the Hip Hop Honors. He has performed for and visited troops overseas numerous times, and remains one of entertainment's most vocal supporters of soldiers abroad.
