Legendary music artist Kid Rock is set to be Co-Grand Marshal as Music City honors veterans this weekend.

Brigadier General Eden Murrie, retired from the Air Force, will be at the forefront of the parade, accompanied by Kid Rock. Joining them in the procession will be various participants, such as members of the U.S. military and Tennessee National Guard, the Antioch High School marching band and ROTC, veterans, first responders, and numerous others.

Everyone is welcome to attend the parade and take part in expressing gratitude to our veterans for their dedicated service. The parade is scheduled to make its way down Broadway in downtown Nashville at 11 AM this Saturday, November 11, passing directly in front of Kid Rock’s bar.

So Who Is Kid Rock?

Kid Rock’s musical career began in the early 1990s when he released his debut album, “Grits Sandwiches for Breakfast” in 1990. The album was a mix of hip-hop, hard rock, and country music, and received critical acclaim. However, it was his fourth album, “Devil Without a Cause,” that launched him into the mainstream. The album featured hits like “Bawitdaba,” “Cowboy,” and “Only God Knows Why,” and sold more than 13 million copies worldwide.

Kid Rock has solidified himself as one of the most well-known musicians in the world. He can rap, he can sing, and he can play every instrument in his backing band. Since his 1990 debut, he has released nine more albums.
