As names continually bounced around as to who would serve as music performers during President Donald Trump’s inauguration festivities, there was one name that kept coming up as the perfect person to make a true musical splash – Kid Rock.
And while we now know that Kid Rock will not in fact perform as part of any of the various inauguration festivities, we also now know the real reason why it never happened.
It’s rather simple – he was never asked.
According to a recent article in the Detroit Free Press, Kid Rock told the newspaper that he was ‘not formally’ asked to play a part on the festivities, despite the fact that the country rocker was one of the first to publicly show support for the candidate. The comment was made during a news conference where Kid Rock announced a series of shows at Detroit’s brand new Little Caesars Arena venue. “I hope it’s a celebration of this city, the arena and the people who built it,” Kid Rock said about the string of concerts.
And while Kid Rock would have definitely caused a musical shot to the arm to the inauguration festivities, we are sure there will be many opportunities for the Detroit rocker to play a part in Donald Trump’s reign as President of the United States in the days, months and years to come.
