For as long as we can remember, Detroit native, Kid Rock, has been one of the BIGGEST supporters of this town we call the Motor City. He recently teamed up with Pepsi and the NFL to record a special anthem for the city of Detroit and the Detroit Lions! You can listen to what Kid Rock has to say about the town he loves so much!
According to ClickOnDetroit.com, Kid Rock helped launch the Pepsi NFL Anthem program with his song, “In Detroit.” Other singers that recorded songs for teams include Kelly Clarkson, Ice Cube and Travie McCoy. And after about 30 seconds of listening to the new tune, I knew it was perfect! One of the first lines made perfect sense. “We rock blue jeans, tees, and old English Ds .. so baby you best believe this is how we do it in Detroit.” Even the Pepsi NFL Anthem website says that Kid Rock was the perfect choice. “Kid Rock + Detroit Lions = an Anthem that just screams ‘Made In Detroit’.”
Now, they could have easily had someone like Eminem record an album, because when I think of Detroit, I think of Eminem as well. Maybe they will keep Em in mind when they need one recorded for the Detroit Tigers!
Now, take a listen to Kid Rock’s new tune, “In Detroit.”
