This marks Kid Rock’s first appearance at the Taste of Country Music Festival. The artist’s latest album, First Kiss, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard’s Top Rock Albums Chart. Rolling Stone declared, “There’s no arguing with music offered with this degree of energy, joy and conviction,” and that “The Kid has no intention of aging gracefully — happily, he’s as ornery and open-hearted as ever.”
“Kid Rock’s cross-over country has wide appeal and lends itself nicely to the Festival, which features every genre of Country music,” said Dhruv Prasad, Executive Vice President, Live Events, Townsquare Media Inc. “And without a doubt, his high-energy live performance is second to none – we can’t wait for Kid to take the stage.”
The Bud Light Stage, featuring a diverse mix of rising country music talent, will once again be part of the festival’s array of entertainment. Logan Brill, Adley Stump, Amanda Watkins, Keith Walker, Jake Worthington, McKenna Faith and Dylan Jakobsen are scheduled to perform.
