CMT’s Crossroads teams up a current country artist with a rock legend for a collaboration session. Some of the most memorable were Zac Brown Band with Jimmy Buffett, ZZ Top with Brooks And Dunn, and Martina McBride with Pat Benatar. The ultimate pairing was Kid Rock and his father, Hank Williams Jr. Well, actually Bob Ritchie (Kid Rock) isn’t related to Hank but they appeared to be kindred spirit. They seem so similar, actual rumors of Kid Rock being Hank’s illegitimate son circulated online which Hank vehemently denied.
The two Southern rock rebels have become close friends. Vacations together, family visits, showing up as guest stars at each other’s concerts have become routine for Kid Rock and Bocephus. In addition, the two have recorded together on occasion. In addition to the CMT Special, Kid appeared on “Naked Women And Beer” from Hank’s Stormy CD. They teamed up for a Johnny Cash tribute concert. Plus, there’s a brand new video for “Redneck Paradise” that debuted last week. Check out some Hank Jr and Kid Rock collaborations:
“WHISKEY BENT AND HELL BOUND”
