Sweet Home Alabama is a song I know. Kid Rock put his own lyrics on top of that melody last year. It was a huge hit for Kid. We will see both Kid Rock and Lynyrd Skynyrd play The Marcus Amphitheater on the last night of Summerfest. Lynyrd Skynyrd will open the show, but you can bet that they will come back out for Kid's most current hit song.
Kid Rock comes from Detroit, so it was interesting to listen to the way he crafted the words to that old song Sweet Home Alabama. This Summerfest season sure leans towards the southern end of things. With three country acts, and now this southern rock band backing up Kid Rock, a whole new group of fans will come to know the fun of having Summerfest tickets in hand.
