Kid Rock is the self-titled sixth album by Kid Rock, his fourth Atlantic Records album. It was released in 2003. It was critically acclaimed by Rolling Stone Magazine, they named it one of the 50 Greatest Albums of 2003. This is the last album to feature the genres, rap metal and hip-hop before Rock crossed over to more country rock. "Black Bob" and " Jackson,Mississippi" were recorded for his 1996 album "Early Mornin Stoned Pimp" in 1995, but were left off the album. "Feel Like Makin Love", "Cold And Empty", "Intro", "Hillbilly Stomp" and "Run Off To LA" were recorded for the demo sessions for 2001's "Cocky", but did not make the cut has well. " Feel Like Makin Love" originally had Sheryl Crow on the song. Country singer Kenny Chesney co wrote "Cold And Empty".
The album's lead single was a cover of Bad Company's "Feel Like Makin' Love". It was released October 2, 2003 to radio and peaked at #33 on the Mainstream Rock charts. In January 2004 he released the dark southern metal song "Jackson, Mississippi" to rock stations and the country love ballad "Cold and Empty" to AC and Pop stations. Jackson peaked at #14 on the Mainstream Rock charts while Cold and Empty peaked at #20 on the AC charts. The song failed to chart on either the Top 40 or Hot 100. In July 2004 he followed the same route releasing dual singles again, releasing the acoustic ballad "I Am" to rock radio and the country ballad "Single Father", a cover of David Allan Coe, to country radio. "I Am" peaked at #28 on the Mainstream Rock charts. "Single Father" would become Kid Rock's second charting country song, after "Picture". It would peak at #50.
