Each year, Put-in-Bay holds a huge concert at the Put-in-bay Airport featuring a country-ish superstar. The next big name to headline the island is Kid Rock, also featuring Uncle Kracker and some other acts. This event announcement was so huge that every lodging on the island is already sold out, and every ticket online is already sold out. The island will be packed for this Put-in-Bay superstar and performance.
Kid Rock started his professional music career as a self-taught rapper and DJ, releasing his debut album Grits Sandwiches for Breakfast in 1990 on the major record label Jive; his subsequent independent releases The Polyfuze Method and Early Mornin’ Stoned Pimp saw him developing a more distinctive style which was fully realized on his 1998 album Devil Without a Cause; this and his subsequent album Cocky were noted for blending elements of hip hop, country, rock and heavy metal. Starting with his 2010 album Born Free, the country music style has dominated Kid Rock’s musical direction, and since 2007’s Rock n Roll Jesus until 2017’s Sweet Southern Sugar, Kid Rock has not been doing rap songs.
