has unveiled details of his first-ever live album, dubbed Live Trucker
. The 13-track set, which captures the American Bad A-- and his Twisted Brown Trucker Band in all their on-stage glory, is set to hit stores on February 28th.
Recorded at various Michigan locations in 2000 and 2004, "Live Trucker" finds the multi-platinum Son of Detroit and his band lighting up home state arenas with their genre-smashing high-octane musical brew. The album includes volatile versions of Rock's biggest and baddest hits, from hard-driving faves like "Cowboy" and "You Never Met A Motherf--ker Quite Like Me," to powerful ballads such as "Picture" and "Only God Knows Why." Needless to say, no Kid Rock concert collection would be complete without full-blown takes on Rock's classic anthems, including "Bawitdaba" and "American Bad A--."
"Live Trucker" features guest appearances from longtime Twisted Brown Trucker members Uncle Kracker
and the late great Joe C, as well as the "Redneck Woman" herself, Gretchen Wilson
, who joins Rock on-stage for a special rendition of "Picture." In addition, the album includes a previously unreleased cover of the funked-up classic, "Outstanding," originally made famous by the legendary Gap Band
In addition to selling more than 18 million records in the U.S. alone, Kid Rock has proven himself to be an inveterate road warrior, blowing the roofs off of theatres, arenas, and enormodomes on countless cross-country and international tours. With "Live Trucker," the Pimp of the Nation gives his legion of fans the chance to bring the live experience home, capturing the power and glory of Kid Rock in concert any time they want to hold their lighters high and let the rock loose.
To celebrate the release of "Live Trucker," Kid Rock and Twisted Brown Trucker Band hit the road for an extensive string of dates beginning January 20th, recently highlighted by a pair of sold-out hometown Super Bowl weekend shows at Detroit's Joe Louis Arena. When the Friday concert sold out in a Kid Rock personal-best time of just six minutes, the second night was added and sold out nine minutes later.
