When Kid Rock was announced as the headliner for the first night of the 2016 Taste of Country Music Festival at Hunter Mountain, many skeptics came out of the wood work. They said that he was rock-rap, with a country feel, but was not REAL COUNTRY.

Well, on first night of the festival, mixed with pyro technics, and an eclectic set list of ALL of his bangers, the "Kid" from Michigan transcended genres and just provided a great show.
