They call him KID ROCK

So, Chris and I went to a Kid Rock concert last night. Can you believe it a Kid Rock concert. It was alot of fun. Rev. Run from Run DMC was there. He was awesome. The show was called the Rock-N-Roll revival. His last album was called 'Rock-N-Roll Jesus' There was a full crowd. It was not a show for kids but believe it or not I saw several children there. I think the youngest I saw was about 5 years old. I couldn't believe it. I mean before we even got the tickets I knew what to expect. There would be drinking, there would be potty mouths, there would be half dressed women, there would be all that goes along with the image of Kid Rock. I was really surprise that I did see any women flashing. I will say the cursing didn't bother me as much as I thought that it would. However, there was alot of bad words. I don't think I have ever heard that may bad words in a three hour block. Except when Danielle was around.(Clint's ex-wife, thats another story)
I am a fan of only some of Kid Rock's work. I like his country softer side. I like songs like Picture, Cold and Empty, and Only God Knows Why. I do enjoy some of his more upbeat stuff like Cowboy. However, I hadn't really listened to his new album Rock n Roll Jesus. However, I didn't listen to it this weekend, and I have to say there is a couple of songs that I really enjoyed.
There was one song that really got to me. You know he writes his own stuff. I really dig the lyrics to this song. I really think it has a message. The only problem is when he sings it he puts the GD word. I have taken it away so that everyone including myself could read and really give some thought to the message. Well done Kid Rock. The song is titled 'Amen'
It's another night in hell
Another child won't live to tell
Can you imagine what it's like to starve to death
And as we sit free and well
Another soldier has to yell
Tell my wife and children I love them in his last breath
C'mon now amen, amen, amen
Habitual offenders, scumbag lawyers with agendas
I'll tell you sometimes people I don't know what's worse
Natural disasters or these wolves in sheep clothes pastors
Now I'm scared to send my children to church
And how can we seek salvation when our nations race relations
Got me feeling guilty of being white
But faith in human nature, our creator and our savior, I'm no saint
But I believe in what is right
C'mon now amen, amen
I said amen, amen
Stop pointing fingers and take some blame,
Pull your future away from the flame
Open up your mind and start to live
Stop short changing your neighbors
Living off hand outs and favors, and maybe
Give a little bit more than you got to give
Simplify, testify, identify, rectify
And if I get high stop being so uptight
It's only human nature and I am not a stranger
So baby won't you stay with me tonight

No Way, Kid Rock? Really? He can't even hold a candle to Michael Buble', can he? Big difference I bet.

Did you remember that he was in the movie "Joe Dirt?" I saw the last of the movie one day last week and there he was in a black Trans Am. It was funny.

I don't know who he is, but He doesn't sound very uplifting.
