Born Free by Kid Rock
Released: Sep 2010
Label: Top Dog/Atlantic
Kid's 2010 album -- easily his mellowest and most tastefully sincere -- was branded a big deal from the gitgo, thanks to Rick Rubin production and a pile of major cameos: Martina McBride and T.I. trading lines of heartfelt concern in "Care"; Sheryl Crow backed by Bob Seger's piano in "Picture" replay "Collide"; Zac Brown and assorted members of the Chili Peppers, Los Lobos and Tom Petty's Heartbreakers elsewhere. Kid trades in funky crunch-rock and lecherous punchlines for a politely unwinding road choogle, and even tries some falsetto. But with "Times Like These," he doesn't forget Detroit.
