Kid Rock is a fascinating figure. A self-proclaimed "American Bad Ass," fans have watched Rock evolve from bad boy rap-rocker to a more thoughtful and sensitive singer/songwriter embracing blues, country and soul over the last 19 years (yes, his debut album came out in 1991!).
OK, maybe he's had those elements throughout his career, yet his recent classic-rock-tinged single "Born Free" is really a far cry from the angry sound of "Bawitdaba," and he's now become a massive crossover artist who is just as at home on MTV as he is on VH1 and CMT. Everyone mellows, and yet Kid Rock still hasn't lost his edge. The many sides of Kid Rock--the dad, the rocker, the party animal, the fighter--will all be on display during "Kid Rock: Born Free," a documentary that will be available on MTV.com starting Nov. 16.
During the documentary, Kid Rock shares his unique perspective on life and music as he spends time with his son, family and a wide variety of friends. The special also includes unprecedented access to his tour rehearsals and the chaos that ensues when he throws a huge house party at his sprawling farm in sleepy Clarkson, Michigan.
We've got the trailer from the documentary below. Tune in Tuesday, Nov. 16, on MTV.com to see the entire documentary. "Kid Rock: Born Free" also airs on MTV2, Friday, Nov. 19, at 11:30pm ET/PT and on
MTV, Saturday, Nov. 20, at 8pm ET/PT.
