Kid Rock And Jamey Johnson To Hit The Road Together In 2011

In what promises to be an awesome night of music and fun, Kid Rock will be hitting the road in 2011 with Jamey Johnson as his opening act. Rock released his new album, a much more country sounding disc than he's ever released before titled Born Free, this week. It is no doubt an interesting move for an artist that has moved from rap to rock and now towards country.

The tour will kickoff with a 40th birthday bash that Kid is throwing for himself at Detroit's Ford Field with 60,000 of his closest friends. The show will include special guests and will have the venue renamed "40 Field" for the night. Tickets for the Detroit show will go on sale on November 26th.

Jamey Johnson and Waylon's Cadillac

Jamey Johnson's music sure has a lot in common with the music of the late Waylon Jenning's sound so it comes as no surprise to know that Johnson is a big fan of Waylon's. In fact, Johnson is such a fan of ol' Waylon's that he drives around in the last car Waylon ever owned, a 1999 Cadillac El Dorado.

“If you’re riding around with me in that car, you’re going to be listening to Waylon,” Jamey noted. “That’s the bottom line — you’re going to be listening to the man on his own stereo. He’s also got one of them old-school cell phones with the cradle still mounted in the middle of it. The phone’s still in it, the antenna, the whole deal.”

How cool is that? Talk about the ultimate souvenir! You can read more about Jamey's and Waylon's Caddy by clicking here to read the full story on gactv.com!

Jamey Johnson - His Story

GACTV.com usually has great write ups about artists, where they came from and history of that nature. This month the focus is on Jamey Johnson and I have to say that he is just an all around great guy. Although he has earned rights as a singer/songwriter to be reckoned with and showered with accolades, awards, plaques, trophies and statuettes, they aren’t the answer to his dreams.

"My dream already came true," says the Alabama native who has rocketed to Nashville stardom. "All I ever wanted was to get to just ride around and sing country music. It’s cool when things happen along the way, because those are things I never thought I could achieve. But whatever happens, I’ll just keep on doing what I do. I wake up every day and go play some more country music."

His current project The Guitar Song is a 25-song, double album with thematically linked sets of songs dubbed the "Black Album" and the "White Album."
