Young like a new moon rising
Fierce thru the rain and lightning
Wandering out into this great unknown

And I don't want no one to cry
But tell 'em if I don't survive

I was born free
I was born free
I was born free
Born free

Free like a river raging
Strong as the wind I'm facing
Chasing dreams and racing Father Time

Deep like the grandest canyon
Wild like an untamed stallion
If you can't see my heart you must be blind

You can knock me down and watch me bleed
But you can't keep no chains on me

I was born free
I was born free
I was born free
Born free

And I'm not good at long goodbyes
But look down deep into my eyes
I was born free

Calm, facin' danger
Lost, like an unknown stranger
Grateful for my time with no regrets

Close to my destination
Tired, frail and aching
Waiting patiently for the sun to set

And when it's done, believe that I
Will yell it from that mountain high

And I will bow to the shining seas
And celebrate God's grace on thee

Born Free is the eighth studio album by American musician Kid Rock. It was released on November 16, 2010 with the title track as its lead single.[6]

The country-oriented album was produced by Rick Rubin featuring several high-profile artists such as T.I., Sheryl Crow, and Bob Seger. This is Kid Rock's first, and to date, only album not to feature a Parental Advisory sticker and is his first all-country album. It is also the first album since 1993's The Polyfuze Method not to feature his backing band Twisted Brown Trucker. Marlon Young is the only member from Twisted Brown Trucker to perform on the album. Kid Rock describes it as 'very organic blues-based rock and roll'.[7] Cable network TBS used the title track, 'Born Free', for its coverage of the 2010 Major League Baseball postseason. As of June 16, 2011 Born Free is certified Platinum by the RIAA for shipments in excess of one million copies. This gave Kid Rock his sixth Platinum album certification in the US. A Michigan only promotion was released with the album. It was a 4-song EP called Racing Father Time.

Release and promotion[edit]

The album's lead single was the title track. The songs promotional push included being the theme for the MLB Playoffs, European Music Awards and the CMA Festival. He also performed 'Times Like These' at the American Music Awards and 'Care' at the Rally for Sanity. This led to a debut of 189,000 copies sold and landing at number five on the billboard top 200. VH-1 aired the Isle of Malta concert special. The following single 'God Bless Saturday' became the secondary theme song for ESPN's College Game Day. The third single 'Collide' saw him reunite with Sheryl Crow with whom he previously recorded his 2002 single 'Picture' and went on a joint tour with. 'Purple Sky' failed to chart and the final single was 'Care' with rapper T.I. and depending on the version, Martina McBride, Mary J. Blige or Angaleena Presley of the Pistol Annies.

Critical reception[edit]

Upon its release, Born Free received mixed reviews from most music critics.[8] At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album received an average score of 63, based on 10 reviews, which indicates 'generally favorable reviews'.[8]

AllMusic praised Born Free, saying it 'goes a long, long way toward keeping that heartland flame burning bright: it’s familiar yet fresh, and song for song it’s the best album Kid Rock has cut since Devil Without a Cause.[1] This album was number 16 on Rolling Stone's list of the 30 Best Albums of 2010.[9]
