Kid Rock

Robert James "Bob" Ritchie, born January 17, 1971, known by his stage name Kid Rock, is an American singer-songwriter, musician, multi-instrumentalist and rapper with five Grammy Awards nominations. Kid Rock released several studio albums that went mostly unnoticed before his 1998 record Devil Without a Cause, released with Atlantic Records, sold 11 million albums behind the hits "Bawitdaba", "Cowboy", and "Only God Knows Why". In 2000, he released The History of Rock, a compilation of remixed and remastered versions of songs from previous albums as well as the hit single, "American Bad Ass". Kid Rock released the follow-up in 2001, Cocky. After a slow start, his country-flavored hit "Picture" with Sheryl Crow resurrected the album and it went gold as a single and pushed the album's sales over 5 million. It was followed by 2003's self-titled release, which went platinum. In 2006 he released Live Trucker, a greatest hits live album that failed to go platinum. Making his comeback in 2007, Kid Rock released Rock n Roll Jesus, which produced hits in "So Hott", "Amen " and "All Summer Long". The latter was his first worldwide smash hit, charting No. 1 in eight countries across Europe
