Kid Rock Keeps It “Real” at CMT Music Awards

Yes, he smoked. Yes, he made some snide remarks that might’ve been a little inappropriate for a family show. Kid Rock did all those bad-boy things right. But here is why he was the perfect host for the CMT Music Awards. During his 10-second speech at the very end, he said this: “As a music lover, if it looks good you’ll see it. If it sounds good, you’ll hear it. If it’s marketed right, you’ll buy it. But if it’s real, you’ll feel it.” I don’t know if the show’s writers wrote that for him or if he came up with it on his own, but it felt genuine to me. And that’s the power of music and of Kid Rock. He may not be the countriest guy out there, and he wasn’t an obvious choice as host. But you can tell that to him, music is all that matters. And to me, that matters.
