Watch Kenny Chesney Bring Kid Rock On Stage in Detroit
Kid Rock isn't performing much this summer, at least not by his own road dog standards, but on Saturday (Aug. 13) he spent one of his nights with Kenny Chesney during the country star's Spread the Love tour stop at Ford Field in Rock's native Detroit.
Introduced as a "brother" by Chesney -- who also recalled that Rock "pissed off my Uncle Buck" when the two met some years before -- Rock strode on stage sporting a lightweight fedora and a Detroit Lions vest. The two broke into a snippet of The Allman Brothers Band's "Midnight Rider,” which segued into Rock's hit "Cowboy," much to the delight of the nearly 46,000 partisan fans in attendance.
The pair finished with a quick romp through David Allan Coe's "You Never Even Called Me By My Name" before Rock exited, nearly forgetting the Lions vest he had taken off until Chesney returned it to him.
Chesney has five more dates on the tour, including two on Aug. 26-27, at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Mass., as well as Bristol's Tailgate Party on Sept. 9 at the Birstol Motor Speedway in Tennessee. The country star’s new album, Cosmic Hallelujah, is due out Oct. 28.
Rock, meanwhile, has several more shows on tap, including his Kid Rock's Fish Fry during early October in White Creek, Tenn., and Charlie Daniels' Volunteer Jam on Nov. 30 in Nashville. He’s also working on a new album, though no title and release date have been announced.
