The house will be rockin' -- literally -- when Kid Rock takes the stage to open the Sprint Cup Series Awards Ceremony on Dec. 2 at Wynn Las Vegas.
NASCAR on Wednesday announced that the renowned singer-songwriter and musician will perform the title track and lead single Born Free from his latest platinum-selling album, which was released last November. Kid Rock joins multimedia superstar and event host, Reba, on the list of top name celebrities performing at the year-end awards ceremony.
