Kid Rock Releases New Song “Tennessee Mountain Top”

KID ROCK RELEASES NEW SONG “TENNESSEE MOUNTAIN TOP”

Impacting at Country Radio 10/2

At one minute past midnight Kid Rock unveiled his latest song “Tennessee Mountain Top” on streaming and sales platforms. “Tennessee Mountain Top” is impacting at Country Radio October 2. The track brings out a Country infused southern rock spirit that has drawn Country fans to Kid Rock for almost two decades since he released the CMA, ACM nominated “Picture.” Both “Picture” and his massive summer anthem “All Summer Long” continue to be fan favorites at Country Radio.

A five time Grammy nominee with over 26 million albums sold to date, Kid Rock has consistently blazed his own trail. His career intersected early with Country audiences and created a connection that has continued to grow each year. He has been twice nominated for CMA Awards, “Picture” with Sheryl Crow (2003) and “Can’t You See” with Zac Brown Band (2010). This October 6th and 7th he will host Kid Rock’s Third Annual Fish Fry in Nashville, yet another sign of his close ties to Nashville and Country Music.

Since the spontaneous release of his two most recent tracks in July, “Po-Dunk” and “Greatest Show On Earth” and their accompanying videos, Kid Rock has been at the center of media coverage speculation as to his musical and personal ambitions.

While others speculate, the artist known for his slew of American anthems and his explosive live shows has been busy touring and preparing for an epic series of concerts opening Detroit’s new Little Caesars Arena. Not only is he the maiden act for the venue, he recently announced that the venue will play host to his own Made in Detroit restaurant to open on the Woodward Avenue side of Little Caesars Arena.

Kid Rock’s Made in Detroit Restaurant Set To Bring Flavor and Fun To Little Caesars Arena

 

Kid Rock’s Made in Detroit Restaurant Set To Bring Flavor and Fun To Little Caesars Arena

Kid Rock is expanding his brand that includes such hits as “Cowboy,” “Picture,” and “All Summer Long” to the culinary side with the launch of Kid Rock’s Made in Detroit, a contemporary food and music restaurant inspired by the award-winning musician, as part of the soon-to-be-completed Little Caesars Arena in downtown Detroit. In keeping true with his larger-than-life reputation, he promises to make just as loud of a bang in the restaurant business as he has done with his music.

Kid Rock’s Made in Detroit restaurant is a reflection of one of Detroit’s most loyal and successful native sons. Created by Delaware North in collaboration with Kid Rock, the 5800-square-foot, 230-seat restaurant is open year round for lunch and dinner, offering a menu of classic Detroit and Southern-influenced dishes, along with traditional comfort foods and bar fare. The bar will feature local beers and craft cocktails that guests can enjoy before, during and after watching events at the arena, as well as on non-game days. The restaurant is also designed to serve as an incubator of music talent, with a specific focus on local artists. Kid Rock memorabilia is part of the restaurant’s décor, as is a live-music stage that will showcase up-and-coming musicians.

The story of Kid Rock reads like an “Against All Odds” American success story of hard work, perseverance, and a commitment to excellence throughout his multi-million selling recording career – and he has done so in his signature “Bad Ass” fashion complete with undeniable style and swagger.

“I am extremely humbled and excited for this year’s Volunteer Jam. I think the fans are going to get a great variety of music from rock to country to southern rock with this stellar lineup, which reminds me so much of some of the early ‘Jams’ that we held at Municipal Auditorium,” says Charlie Daniels. “We are also going to be raising some well-needed money to continue our support of the Veterans through the Journey Home Project.”

A portion of the proceeds from the night will go to the The Journey Home Project, a 501(c)(3) non-profit co-founded by Daniels and manager, David Corlew, to help Veterans of the United States Armed Forces. For more info on The Journey Home Project, please visit: thejourneyhomeproject.org.

“The Volunteer Jam has been a staple of the Charlie Daniels Band’s career since 1974. We’re thrilled to be able to use the platform we’ve built through the years to give back to the men and women who give so much of themselves for us, our veterans. This is a culmination of wonderful friends, hard work and great music that is shaping up to be one of the best Volunteer Jam’s to date!” said David Corlew, Charlie Daniels’ manager and co-founder of The Journey Home Project.

Charlie Daniels’ 80th Birthday Volunteer Jam is produced by Mike Smardak of Outback Concerts in association with David Corlew & Associates and Webster & Associates.

About The Volunteer Jam:
The Volunteer Jam, a multi genre musical extravaganza is one of Charlie Daniels’ best known accomplishments. The legendary event began in 1974 at the War Memorial Auditorium in Nashville, TN as a way of celebrating their first hometown sellout concert. The CDB invited numerous musical compadres to stop by “and do some jamming.” Among those who dropped in were members of the Marshall Tucker Band and The Allman Brothers Band. Recordings from this Jam are included on the CDB’s Fire On The Mountain LP, and 100 radio stations aired one-hour tapes of the event. CDB songs at Jam I included “Whiskey,” “Long Haired Country Boy,” “Trudy,” and “The South’s Gonna Do It, (Again).” This was the beginning of the Homecoming concert tradition.

Volunteer Jam II (1975) took place at Murphy Center on the Middle Tennessee State University campus in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. The first year’s 2400 revelers and 10,600 of their friends returned for another advance sellout. The evening was documented in “Volunteer Jam,” the first Southern rock motion picture. The aristocracy of Southern rock – The Marshall Tucker Band, Dickey Betts and Chuck Leavell of The Allman Brothers Band, and Dru Lombar of Grinderswitch – “volunteered” with The CDB. Alvin Lee of Ten Years After, Hee Haw regular Roni Stoneman, top ranked session men Jamie Nichol and Karl Himmel, along with Jimmy Hall of Wet Willie and Billy Joe Shaver were also among the performing guests. Taped broadcasts were aired on 120 radio stations. At that time, “The South’s Gonna Do It (Again),” was a hit anthem on FM radio and the CDB was enjoying popularity that would keep on building.

Volunteer Jam III moved to Nashville’s Municipal Auditorium in 1976 where the CDB’s homecoming concert continued annually until 1985. Another advance sellout included mail orders from as far away as New York and California. The rowdy bash attained the stature of a civic event inspiring mayoral and gubernatorial proclamations. Radio coverage doubled the first year’s programmers. More than 250 stations aired two-hour tapes of Volunteer Jam III via King Biscuit Radio Network.

In 1979 at Volunteer Jam V, Lynyrd Skynyrd reunited for the first time since the 1977 plane crash for a tribute to the legendary Skynyrd band.

Volunteer Jam X (1984) marked the Jam debut as an international media event. The CDB and more than 30 guest artists entertained millions around the world via an unprecedented live Voice of America broadcast . The SRO event was later aired as a two-hour TV special, produced by Dick Clark Productions, and syndicated by Multimedia Entertainment. Television personalities Dick Clark, Byron Allen of NBC’s “Real People,” and MTV’s deejay Alan Hunter were on hand.
Daniels, had no limit to the genre of music that was invited to perform at Volunteer Jams and the lineups included rock, country bluegrass, gospel, soul, classical, comedy, and southern rock.

Other memorable moments at Volunteer Jam Municipal Auditorium concerts include performances by Billy Joel, Ted Nugent and Molly Hatchet performing “Mississippi Queen.” Leon Russell, Mickey Gilley, Duane Eddy, Woody Herman, and the Jordanaires made appearances as well as, Vince Gill, the late Nicolette Larson, Dwight Yoakam, the late Papa John Creach, and Willie Nelson singing his classic “Crazy.”

The list goes on. Other historic performances included Soloman Burke, Sea Level, Eddie Rabbit, Poco, the Oak Ridge Boys, B. B. King, Delbert McClinton, Ray Price, ( “For the Good Times,”) Roy Acuff, Amy Grant, John Prine, Bonnie Bramlett, Emmylou Harris, the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and Carl Perkins. When Little Richard removed his shirt and shoes while performing, the crowd went wild. James Brown brought the house down when he performed “I Feel Good,” along with a medley of his hits. The crowd never knew who would appear next.

Volunteer Jams took place at Starwood Amphitheater in Nashville, TN from 1986 to 1992 and were the subject of documentary TV productions as well as a live appearance on the national broadcast of the Jerry Lewis Telethon. Guest at Starwood Jams included Don Henley and J.D. Souther performing “Desperado and “You’re Only Lonely.”

Volunteer Jam XIII brought back Lynyrd Skynyrd for a 2nd reunion with a paralyzed Allen Collins speaking to the crowd, not long before his passing. Pat Boone performed, and Tennessee Governor Lamar Alexander played piano, while Travis Tritt, and Garth Brooks joined CDB on “Drinkin’ My Baby Goodbye.”

Volunteer Jam XVI was the last of the official Vol Jam concerts held on Oct. 28, 1996 at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center in Nashville. The first ever acoustic Volunteer Jam, commemorated Charlie Daniels’ 60th birthday. Joining Charlie for a very special birthday party included David Ball, John Berry, Tracy Byrd, Billy Ray Cyrus, Tracy Lawrence, David Lee Murphy, Victoria Shaw, Jimmy Hall & Lorrie Morgan.

Charlie Daniels’ 40th Anniversary Volunteer Jam brought the historic event to its largest stage yet, Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena. A sold out crowd raised over $300,000 for Charlie’s 501(c)(3) non-profit The Journey Home Project benefitting American Veterans, military members, and their families. The memorable anniversary event featured The Charlie Daniels Band, Ted Nugent, Trace Adkins, Alabama, Blackberry, Bonnie Bramlett, Eric Church, Terri Clark, Billy Crain, Billy Ray Cyrus, Billy Dean, Colt Ford, The Grascals, Lee Greenwood, Jimmy Hall, The Kentucky Headhunters, Jamey Johnson, Tracy Lawrence, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Montgomery Gentry, , Craig Morgan, The Oak Ridge Boys, Lee Roy Parnell, Jeannie Seely, Michael W. Smith, Natalie Stovall, Travis Tritt, Phil Vassar, Ryan Weaver, Wynonna, and Tucker Yochim among others.

In addition, downtown hotel-casinos offer fabulous deals on room rates, gambling and food and drink specials.”

Theory of a Deadman
The platinum-selling Vancouver quartet, Theory of a Deadman, builds arena-ready hooks around hard rocking stories of good times, bad times and everything in between. “Lowlife,” is a raucous anthem celebrating simple pleasures. Meanwhile, “The Bitch Came Back” gives a hilarious send-off to a bad ex with roaring guitars and flourishes of horns. “Hurricane” stirs up a storm of emotions over an orchestral hum of guitars and massive chorus. Then there’s “Head Above Water,” which delivers an uplifting, contemplative message encased in mid-tempo rhythms.

The band solidified their place at the top of modern hard rock by exceeding Platinum sales with their breakthrough album Scars & Souvenirs and with #1 Mainstream Rock Radio hit “Bad Girlfriend.” At the same time, other singles, “So Happy” and “By The Way,” became crowd favorites on tours with notable bands from Mötley Crüe and Godsmack to Daughtry and label mates Stone Sour.

Fuel burst onto the scene with their 1998 full-length debut album Sunburn, featuring the massive hit “Shimmer.” Since then the band has sold over 3.5 million albums in the U.S. and recorded additional top hits including “Innocent,” “Hemorrhage (In My Hands),” and “Falls on Me.” Fuel has performed sold out tours all over the world, headlining venues and opening for bands including Aerosmith, Kid Rock, Creed and 3 Doors Down.

Lit
Fullerton, Calif. rock band Lit is comprised of brothers A. Jay and Jeremy Popoff, and lifelong friends, Kevin Baldes and Allen Shellenberger. Their second album A Place in the Sunspawned three hit singles: “Miserable,” which went to #3 on the Modern Rock Tracks, and whose video featured the flaxen voluptitude of Pamela Anderson; “Zip-Lock,” and “My Own Worst Enemy” (which held the number one position on the Billboard Hot Modern Rock Tracks chart for three months, and received a Billboard Music Award for the biggest modern rock song of 1999). They rocked Woodstock 1999 and supported the Offspring, No Doubt and Garbage, spanning the globe and clocking in close to 500 shows between 1999 and 2000. And riding on its heels, A Place In The Sun’s 2001 follow-up Atomic boasted yet another Top Ten single for the band, “Lipstick And Bruises,” and a support tour with Kid Rock.

Hinder
Hinder debuted on the rock scene in 2005 with their first album Extreme Behavior, which sold over three-million copies in the U.S. and featured the breakthrough single “Lips of an Angel” which hit #1 on the Billboard Pop Chart. The album also featured popular hits “Better Than Me” and “Get Stoned.” The follow-up in 2008, Take it to the Limit, surpassed Gold status after debuting at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 with over 80,000 copies sold first week. Meanwhile, their third effort, American Nightmare, was released in 2010. Along the way, the band has shared the stage on national tours with everyone Mötley Crüe and Nickelback to Papa Roach and Saving Abel.

Founded in Portland, Ore. in 1992, Everclear independently released their debut album World of Noise. The band’s relentless touring regimen and D.I.Y. promotional tactics helped set to set the stage for the platinum-level breakthrough of 1995’s Sparkle and Fade, which spawned the hits “Santa Monica” and “Heroin Girl.” The band’s ascendancy continued with 1997’s So Much for the Afterglow, which produced the radio hits “Everything to Everyone,” “I Will Buy You A New Life,” and “Father of Mine.” In 2012 Everclear released their newest album “Invisible Stars” featuring new songs that embody the same qualities of punch, sturdy songcraft and edgy introspection that have long endeared Everclear to its large and loyal worldwide fan base.

Live
Live burst onto the burgeoning alternative scene in 1991, but it was their sophomore album Throwing Copper that solidified their status as bonafide superstars. The album featured hit songs “Lightning Crashes,” “All Over You,” and “I Alone.” The album reached #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and surpassed sales of 10 million in merely two years. Rolling Stone and MTV both dubbed the album “One of the 25 Greatest Rock Albums of All-Time”, while tastemakers from Spin to The New York Times lauded it with equal praise. Upon release, its 1997 follow-up Secret Samadhi immediately shot to #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and eventually went six-times platinum. However, on The Distance to Here in 1999, Live turned into an international powerhouse and jumped from arenas into stadiums all over the globe driven by the smash “The Dolphin’s Cry”. V and Birds of Pray followed, continuing to expand their legacy and satiate the rabid and faithful fan base that they had amassed over nearly two decades. Live’s music remains a pillar of the nineties both musically and culturally. The band infused heartfelt melodies with raw energy for an inimitable style that stood out from the early nineties pack.

Filter
Shoving a fist in the face of tradition has been Filter’s modus operandi since the release of their self-produced debut album, Short Bus. The album’s rough-around-the-edges production brought the group’s first hit single “Hey Man, Nice Shot” which peaked at #10 on Billboards Modern Rock Tracks. Their second album, Title of Record, featured hit song “Take a Picture” which has been featured in numerous motion pictures including The Girl Next Door, Saving Grace, Little Nicky and Pay it Forward. Filter’s sixth album, The Sun Comes Out will be released on June 4, 2013.

Sponge
Sponge has proven to be one of the Motor City’s heaviest hitters after gaining international notoriety with their debut album Rotting Piñata. Emerging from Detroit with hits like “Plowed” and “Molly (16 Candles)” Sponge received massive airplay on radio stations from coast to coast and were in heavy rotation on MTV. Both “Plowed” and “Molly” hit #5 onBillboard’s Modern Rock Charts, catapulting “Rotting Piñata” to Gold, and ultimately Platinum status. Sponge’s follow up CD, the critically lauded “Wax Ecstatic” (Columbia) scored additional top ten Billboard hits including “Wax Ecstatic” and “Have You Seen Mary?” The band’s music was also featured in popular movies The Craft, Chasing Amy, Mall Ratsand Empire Records. Having shared stages the world over with Guns N’ Roses, Nickelback, Iggy Pop, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Kiss, to name just a few, Sponge continues to be one of rock’s most sought after live acts. Front man Vinnie Dombroski captivates audiences with his powerful voice, heart-on-his-sleeve lyrics and high-octane stage presence. In May of 2013 Sponge will release a highly anticipated new album Stop the Bleeding.

Puddle of Mudd
Puddle of Mudd is a Kansas City, Missouri based post-grunge rock band that has been capturing audiences for more than a decade. Their debut studio album Come Clean, released in 2001 gave them the breakthrough to the mainstream music scene with hit singles like “She Hates Me,” “Blurry” and “Drift and Die” and “Blurry,” a power rock ballad which peaked at #1 on both Billboard’s Hot Modern Rock Tracks and Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks. Since then the band has achieved platinum-plus sales, sold out crowds and released more than a dozen radio hits. After a decade of churning out their own material, Puddle of Mudd have put down their pens in favor of recording 11 classic rock tracks by artists such as: The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, The Steve Miller Band, AC/DC, Elton John and many others.
