New Poll: Kid Rock

I was working this afternoon and suddenly I noticed Kid Rock's new song Born Free was playing on our XM radio. We change channels from time to time but lately it's been on country, either The Highway (new country) or The Roadhouse (classic country). For a second I thought someone had changed channels but when I checked it was on The Highway.

I like Kid Rock. I think he's as genuine as you are going to find. Born Free is questionably the best song he's ever released and it's definitely crossover friendly (i.e. get ready to be beatdown with it in commercials in the not too distant future). I love this song and it's really raised Kid Rock up my personal charts.

But is Kid Rock new country?

I leave it to The South 40 Nation to decide.

New Country? Probably, it's pretty much an anything goes genre.

I hadn't heard the song until seeing it on your blog. Seems kind of Galveston meets The Boxer meets Shooter Jennings.

Does radio play in in full? I would think they'd edit it down into the 3 minute range.
