It is still far-fetched to believe that Kid Rock is serious about running for senate in the state of Michigan. However, his recent persistence can only confirm that it’s true. The American badass received a handful of questions and backlash since it became out in the open, including from Debbie Stabenow. In an updated statement, he loosely confirmed his run revealing a new marketing campaign that will run through music instead of writing books similar to other politicians. Following his statement, two new songs have been released: “Po-Dunk” and “Greatest Show on Earth.”
You can read Kid Rock’s entire statement and check out the new music videos below:
“Once again the press is wrong. First of all, I’ve got 15 days from my announcement to file paperwork with the FEC! Second, I’m not signed to Warner Bros!!! – which simple fact-checking would have revealed. I have recently worked out a unique deal with BMG, Broken Bow, CAA and Live Nation to release music ON MY TERMS. Like politicians write books during their campaigns, I’m planning on putting out music during mine and IT ALL STARTS TONIGHT AT MIDNIGHT. It’s not a hoax, it’s a strategy and marketing 101! No plans for an album or anything else that has been the usual norm in the music business OR politics…..and…..
Senator Stabenow and I do share a love of music, although probably not the same kind. I concede she is better at playing politics than I am so I’ll keep doing what I do best, which is being a voice for tax paying, hardworking AMERICANS and letting politicians like her know that We the People are sick and tired of their bullshit!
“I am the captain now.”
I know we both share a love of music. I concede he’s better at playing guitar and I’ll keep doing what I do best: fighting for Michigan. https://t.co/CUaGqPu7AB
