‘If You Work Your Butt Off and Pay Taxes…’: Kid Rock Offers Senate Platform (Video)

“I believe if you work your butt off and pay taxes, you should be able to easily understand and navigate the laws, tax codes, health care and anything else the government puts in place that affects us all,” he wrote above a link to his website.

Music icon Kid Rock appeared to solidify his decision to “try a different thing” in a tweet that explained the basics of the platform for his Senate bid.

Last week, in a lengthy social media post, the “All Summer Long” singer blasted critics who saw his announcement that he will seek Sen. Debbie Stabenow’s (D-Mich.) seat as a joke and a publicity stunt.

On Monday afternoon, he followed that post with one that laid out what appeared to be his initial platform.

Kid Rock Running For Senate In Michigan

Kid Rock is running for a U.S. Senate seat in Michigan.

The Michigan-native musician, whose real name is Robert Ritchie, appeared to confirm long-running rumors and speculation in a tweet on Wednesday.

Kid Rock Takes Heat for Line of Pro-Donald Trump Merchandise

Kid Rock has released a line of pro-Donald Trump merchandise that has sent some offended social media users into a frenzy.

The Michigan-based rocker’s new merchandise includes a replica of the now-iconic Trump campaign hat that reads “MAKE AMERICA BADASS AGAIN,” and a t-shirt bearing the slogan “GOD GUNS & TRUMP.”

One T-shirt depicts an electoral map of America, with red states labeled “United States of America” and blue states labeled “Dumbf*ckistan.”

Another pro-Trump shirt from the singer’s store reads “_onald Trump,” with the sub-heading: “The ‘D’ is missing because it’s in every hater’s mouth.”

A note next to the items on the official Warner Bros. merchandise store includes a disclaimer citing “overwhelming demand” as the reason why they “actually made” the shirts. Posts featuring the singer in photoshopped pro-Trump t-shirts had gone viral on social media before the shirts were actually manufactured.

While some applauded the musician’s latest move, other weren’t as thrilled with the new merchandise.

Lynyrd Skynyrd, Springfield to play Trump convention sidelines

Right-leaning rockers Lynyrd Skynyrd, Kid Rock and Rick Springfield will be among performers in Cleveland on the sidelines of this month’s Republican convention.

A coalition of promoters, consultants and charitable groups on Friday announced the concerts at venues in Cleveland, where Republicans are expected to nominate billionaire Donald Trump as their presidential candidate.

“It’s a very exciting time to be a Republican, and this is where politics, policy and entertainment collide,” the organizers said in a statement.

Lynyrd Skynyrd, the Southern rockers best known for the 1974 song “Sweet Home Alabama,” and metal-rap fusionist Kid Rock will play concerts in Cleveland that will raise money for veterans.

Springfield and country stars The Band Perry will play separate shows in honor of the Republican leadership in the House of Representatives.

Springfield, best known for his 1981 hit “Jessie’s Girl,” was born in Australia but became a US citizen and avowed Republican after the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States.

The events are not officially tied to the Republican convention, which will likely have its own entertainment with Trump vowing to bring some showbiz pizzazz to the gathering.

A candid interview with Ted Nugent on politics, LGBT, Kid Rock and music

“Despite what you may have read, I’ve never endorsed Donald Trump. I’ve endorsed no one. I support Trump and Cruz, and I will support whomever the GOP nominee is. I can’t support a communist or a felon which would be Bernie and Hillary. I still believe this is America, not the Planet of the Apes Cuckoo’s Nest Clockwork Orange.”

Ted Nugent speaks his mind, and he had a lot to say in a candid interview with me.

The 67 year old Michigan native will be at Freedom Hill Amphitheatre on Friday, August 26, 2016 at 7:30pm. Brownsville Station will open for him.

He’s sold more than 40 million albums and performed more than 6,500 shows in his career with no signs of slowing down, despite only being able to hear out of one ear.

“I was the Lewis and Clark of garage band exploration. I always wanted to play loud because I loved the way the guitar fed back.”

“By the time I was 12 or 13 I had a band in Detroit called The Lourds. We won the battle of the bands and opened for The Supremes at Cobo Hall in 1963. I was already playing so loud and getting so close to the amp, that I would stick cigarette butts from the other guys in my right ear. In order to get the feedback, I would kneel down right there in front of the speakers. I put makeshift earplugs because it hurt to get that close. Thank God I did that.”

“Nowadays, I do wear ear protection valves on stage. I also don’t play anywhere near loud as I used to.”
