– Kid Rock 's on-going club tour has raised more than $375,000 over the course of the 12-date run for local charities.
As the single Care from his "Born Free" CD is on the charts, Kid Rock premiered a video last week directed by Mark Pellington (first known for his video for Pearl Jam's haunting video for Jeremy) and featuring T.I. and Angaleena Presley (of Pistol Annies). T.I., who is featured in the video, said of working with Kid Rock, "Rock and I have a great relationship and it is fun to work with him. It is an honor to collaborate with my label-mate and partner."
Kid Rock will perform a special version of the song live on CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute, which will be broadcast LIVE on CNN Sunday, Dec. 11 from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles. CNN's Anderson Cooper again hosts the star-studded gala, which this year will be broadcast live at 8 p.m. eastern on the global networks of CNN. The telecast shines a spotlight on the accomplishments of the top 10 CNN Heroes, who will each receive $50,000 in recognition of their work. The show culminates with the announcement of the CNN Hero of the Year, one of the top 10 who will receive an additional $250,000. Voting to select the Hero of the Year is being conducted online at CNNHeroes.com and will end Dec. 7 at 11:59 p.m. Pacific.
