"Picture" is a song by American singer Kid Rock, co-written and originally recorded with Sheryl Crow. The song is taken from Kid Rock's album Cocky. It was released as a single by Kid Rock featuring Allison Moorer on November 12, 2002. It was the first song for the artists to be nominated for Vocal Event of The Year at the 2003 Country Music Association awards.
Kid Rock's label, Atlantic Records, was unable to obtain permission from Crow's label, A&M Records, to release the original version as a single. Therefore Atlantic Records decided to rework the song with country singer Allison Moorer (coincidentally signed to A&M's sister label Universal South Records) instead. Moorer re-recorded Crow’s vocals for the commercial release. The CD single featuring Moorer was released commercially in the US as a single on 12 November 2002.
Even though Atlantic Records was unable to obtain rights to release Crow's version as a single, mainstream, rock/alternative, and some country radio stations disregarded this and played the original version featuring Crow, while other country music radio stations played the radio edit featuring Allison Moorer instead. Because of this, Billboard credited the song on the charts as Kid Rock featuring Sheryl Crow or Allison Moorer.
Since the release of the single, Kid Rock has performed live versions with country singers Kellie Pickler, Martina McBride, Miranda Lambert, Jessie James, Sheryl Crow, Gretchen Wilson, LeAnn Rimes, and Allison Moorer. The version with Gretchen Wilson was released on Kid Rock's 2006 Live Trucker album.
Being the third Kid Rock single that entered Billboard's Hot 100 chart, "Picture" remains his highest-charting single in the United States, peaking at number 4 in April, 2003. The song also charted on the Hot Country Songs, peaking at number 21. Until 2008's "All Summer Long", it also marked his only Top 40 country hit. The song is also Sheryl Crow's second-most successful single in the United States, after her 1994 hit "All I Wanna Do" which reached number 2.
On the Hot Country Songs chart, the song was credited only to Kid Rock and Crow for 22 weeks. By then, the single had reached #33 on the charts. The following week, however, the song began to be credited to Kid Rock featuring Sheryl Crow or Allison Moorer. The song spent a total of 33 weeks on the country chart, reaching #21 in 2003.
Even though Crow's label did not release licensing permissions for the original version, Crow was featured in the music video singing instead of Moorer. The video takes place in a studio showing the two singers recording the song.
