Sheryl Crow and Kid Rock recently released an instant classic called “Picture.” The duet by the two music superstars is quickly climbing the charts. It’s getting a lot of airplay because it appeals to lots of different kinds of people. It’s a rock song with country flavor sung by a white rapper and a pop singer.
The song is featured on Kid Rock’s album, Cocky. Read on to learn more about it.


1. Study - Read the dialog again to see how the vocab words are used.

Kid Rock is known for his unique combination of rap and rock music. Sheryl Crow is known for having one of the most beautiful voices in the music business. Together, they make a powerful pair. Rock’s rough voice is a nice contrast to the smooth sound of Sheryl’s.
“Picture” shows Kid Rock’s sensitive side, much like the song on his last album “Only God Knows Why.” Check out some of the lyrics:
I thought about you for a long time
Can’t seem to get you off my mind
I can’t understand why we’re living life this way
I found your picture today
I swear I’ll change my ways
I just called to say I want you to come back home
I found your picture today
I swear I’ll change my ways
I just called to say I want you to come back home
I just called to say, I love you, come back home

Kid Rock and Sheryl Crow dated for a while. “Picture” is about two people who are in love with each other, so they may have recorded is while they were together. I don’t know about that – but it would make for a good story. Either way, I love the song.
Both Sheryl Crow and Kid Rock are amazing artists. Don’t go on for too long without checking them out!
Rock on,
