In 2002, Kid Rock had a major hit on his hands with the country rock song "Picture." Released late in the year as a single off of his album, Cocky, the song is still one of his most recognizable. 

Originally, the song was recorded as a duet with pop/rock/country artist Sheryl Crow, who also co-wrote the song with Rock. However, Crow's label never gave Rock permission to release her recorded version of the song. As a result, Rock had country singer Allison Moorer record Crow's parts of the song and featured her as his duet partner on the official single. 

Although Crow's label never granted permission for Rock to use her recording, some radio stations still chose to play her version, while others played Moorer's. This resulted in both artists being credited as potential featured performers on the track.

Regardless of which version of "Picture" people listened to, it seemed well-liked by audiences, and peaked at the 21st spot on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart. In addition, the song was a crossover pop hit, claiming the fourth spot on the Billboard Hot 100. The song was an even bigger hit in Canada, where it soared up to the second spot on the charts.

Over the years, Rock has performed "Picture" with various other female country singers, including Martina McBride and Miranda Lambert. But one of his best collaborations was with LeAnn Rimes during his 2003 televised Christmas special.

Rimes does a stunning job at singing Crow/Moorer's parts of the song, and even Rock was blown away by her voice. After she finished singing her first verse and chorus, Rock exclaimed "Oh man!"

But the main "oh man!" moment came when Rock and Rimes started singing together for the first time. They fed off of each other's energy so well, and if you didn't know any better, you'd think Rimes had been his duet partner all along!

You can watch Rock and Rimes' passionate performance of "Picture" below, and let us know what you think.

We hope that Rock and Rimes decide to sing together again sometime soon!

LYRICS BELOW

Livin' my life in a slow hell
Different girl every night at the hotel
I ain't seen the sun shine in 3 damn days
Been fuelin' up on cocaine and whisky
Wish I had a good girl to miss me
Lord I wonder if I'll ever change my ways
I put your picture away
Sat down and cried today
I can't look at you while I'm lyin' next to her
I put your picture away, sat down and cried today
I can't look at you, while I'm lyin next to her

I called you last night in the hotel
Everyone knows but they wont tell
But their half hearted smiles tell me
Somethin' just ain't right
I been waitin' on you for a long time
Fuelin' up on heartaches and cheap wine
I ain't heard from you in 3 damn nights
I put your picture away
I wonder where you been
I can't look at you while I'm lyin' next to him
I put your picture away
I wonder where you been
I can't look at you while I'm lyin' next to him
I saw ya yesterday with an old friend

It was the same ole same "how have you been"

Since you been gone my worlds been dark & grey

You reminded me of brighter days


I hoped you were comin' home to stay
I was headed to church

I was off to drink you away

I thought about you for a long time
Can't seem to get you off my mind
I can't understand why we're living life this way
I found your picture today
I swear I'll change my ways
I just called to say I want you to come back home
I found your picture today
I swear I'll change my ways
I just called to say I want you to come back home
I just called to say, I love you come back home
