Has their been a more interesting career transition than Kid Rock’s in recent memory? I guess it’s just wild to think that for me, he’ll always been a rap-rock dude who used to stir up all sorts of shit. But for anyone who missed that stage of his career — or was unaware of it — he’s been a country artist with an apparent heart of gold.
That’s especially true on his latest single, “Care,” an emotional tune featuring guest appearances from Angaleena Presley and T.I. You’d think that combination wouldn’t work that well, especially given the slide guitars and acoustic strumming, but it actually kind of does. Normally, I would probably think this was corny, but something about it seems too sincere to hate on. Watch the video below. [RU]
