Below is Shannon Curfman's latest newsletter, making an announcement on joining Kid Rock's Twisted Brown Trucker band.
I hope you've had a great summer thus far! As of June 2nd I have been a part of Kid Rock's band, the Twisted Brown Truckers. It has been quite the whirlwind. I basically flew out to meet everyone in Detroit and didn't come home. My first shows with them were for Spike TV and the CMT Awards in Nashville. Since then we did a tour with Bon Jovi that started in London and brought us through Canada and just a few US dates and also played at the Isle Of Malta MTV Music Festival in the Mediterranean. This was not a move I could have seen coming in my professional career but I am very happy about the change. It has allowed me to take a great breather from the crazy amount of work that goes with being an independent solo artist. As much as I love doing all of that after 14 years it was just time for me to take a break. I've really enjoyed playing with Kid and our shows change every night which makes it a lot of fun. Another thing that made this gig so easy to fall into is my old guitar player and main co-writer Marlon Young. He has been Kid Rock's guitarist and main co-writer for the last few years. It was a sweet homecoming of sorts. I also used Kid's bass player and keyboard player on my Fast Lane Addiction album."
