My name is Kattie Sims, I’m 18 years old and live in Bossier City, Louisiana. Not only am I a huge fan of Kid Rock, but you see, it goes a bit deeper than that for my family and I.
My brother Robby Dale Allison passed away on August 30, 2001, ten days after birthday. My mother went into a coma after the news and it was up to my nanny to take care of my little sister and I. Robby was one of the Biggest Kid Rock fans I believe possible, at his funeral Kid's songs were played, but one in particular was chosen and very special to my brother and that was "only God knows why" to this very day those lyrics remain on my brothers tomb stone. Kid Rock isn't just a famous singer to myself and family, he's held much closer to our hearts because of this tragedy and his music is what keeps us strong! Recently, on February 13, 2013. I attended yet another Kid Rock concert. During the concert I was chosen by Kid to come up on the stage and be sung to in front of all of Century Link Center Bossier City, La. After being completely swept off of my feet, kid sang "I just can’t help myself" by the temptations, and was generous enough to give me the guitar he played on stage, hugged me and thanked me for being his biggest fan. My thanks is only to him for being a part of my family and my brother.
With that being known I fully intend to take this opportunity given by the grace of God to share my story with Kid Rock and the world. I am taking guitar lessons with the guitar given to me from kid, and hope that one day if I become good enough, to meet him again and play my very first guitar he gave me; to the song and for him to play along and sing "Only God Knows Why"- I am a strong believer that through God all things are possible and that all things happen for a reason, and if kid did call me up there and give me this guitar for a reason I figure Ima give it hell and make my big brother proud! :)
