He went on to emcee and he became friends with producer D-Nice. D-Nice invited Jive records to see Kid Rock perform; this led to his demo deal and later a full time contract.

Kid spent Christmas in Iraq and Kuwait with the troops. "This year for Christmas I wanted to make sure somebody was thanking our troops for their service, no matter what our views are on the current situation in Iraq. I could be spending Christmas with my family, but in my heart I know this is the right thing to do - not only for our men and women in service, but also to set an unselfish example for my son and send a strong message to the world to be thankful and think of others at Christmas time."
