Kid Rock, Kid Rock has given Mitt Romney, a conservative Republican and fellow Michigan native, his blessing to use his single “Born Free” as the theme song for his 2012 presidential campaign.
A Romney spokesman had earlier this week confirmed to the Detroit Free Press that the politician planned to use the 2010 track and that discussions about the matter were held with the singer’s representatives.
“He and anyone else who wants to use my song do not need my permission,” Kid Rock said about Romney, in a statement posted on his website recently. “I said he could use it and I would say the same for any other candidate. I have to have a little faith that every candidate feels like he or she can help this country. Without faith, we got nothing. I make music to have it be heard. Merry Christmas folks! Rock on.”
The singer, whose real name is Bob Ritchie, co-wrote the song with his backup band’s guitarist, Marlon Young. It was used in a commercial to promote the TBS cable network’s 2010 Major League Baseball postseason coverage and was touted as an ode to American troops. The single is also featured on Kid Rock’s 2010 album by the same name, which has sold more than a million copies domestically.
