Joining many of Nashville’s chart-topping artists, this hard-rocking musician is making Music City a permanent home for his forthcoming music.

Kid Rock, who has already notched himself several country chart hits, has now inked a brand new recording contract with a big Nashville label – and it sounds like he’s set on making country music a bigger part of his repertoire.

Rock (whose foray into country music kicked off with an unforgettable CMT Crossroads performance with Hank Williams Jr.), has always had country in his heart and, many times, has performed alongside other artists in tributes and showcases of country music.

Beyond just dabbling in varying performances, Rock has also issued his own successful songs to country charts – most notably, “Picture” with Sheryl Crow, and his gold-certified hit “All Summer Long”.

This new Nashville record deal is a three-part venture between his own label, Top Dog Records, BMG, and Broken Bow Records. According to multiple reports, BMG will be distributing the music to rock listeners, while Broken Bow will be sending it to country radio.

Most recently, Rock has been hinting at a political campaign – and through those series of statements, has expressed that he is currently working on new music that should be expected in the near future.
