Kid Rock Joins Uncle Kracker at Detroit BMI Singer-Songwriter Series Finale
10/23/2016 by Gary Graff
Kid Rock surprised his hometown fans on Saturday night (Oct. 22), making a guest appearance with longtime pal Uncle Kracker during the finale show of the BMI Singer-Songwriter Series in Detroit.
Rock popped into a chair unannounced at the end of Uncle Kracker's unplugged set for a duet on his 2008 hit "All Summer Long," on which Kracker shares a writing credit. "Not everybody's got a best friend as good as this motherf---er here," Kracker told the packed crowd at Coyote Joe's in the Detroit suburb of Shelby Township -- even more stoked to see Rock because he's not playing any formal shows in the Detroit area this year as he works on his follow-up to 2015's First Kiss. "Not everybody will call you up at nine in the morning and set, "We gotta write this motherf---er here..." A grinning Rock replied, "Don't get all sentimental. Give the people what they want" before breaking into the song, conducting Kracker and his two accompanists through the dynamics of the middle section.
