Kid Rock spends much of his recent time just outside the country music haven of Nashville, Tennessee. And if you’re reading this expecting to see and read about a multi-million dollar mansion, then, unfortunately, you’re in the wrong place!
Where does Kid Rock live?
Although Kid Rock is a mega superstar music star, he certainly does not spend the majority of his time living an average rock star’s lifestyle, right now anyway. In fact, in June 2017, Kid Rock sold his Malibu mansion for $9.5 million and swapped it for for a doublewide trailer.
Yep, you read it right, a TRAILER!! Not as luxurious as you may have thought, right?! But Kid Rock himself wouldn’t have it any other way. Having spent time in a mansion, as well as visiting friends and others in the music industry who live the high life, Kid Rock said, ““You go to these houses and I go, ‘Where do you start in this thing?’ Like, ‘How many times do you use the movie theater?’ I’ve built one. I maybe went in there once.”
And one thing he specifically loves so much about his trailer? “If that trailer burns down or blows off the mountain, order another one,” he said. “It’ll be here in two weeks. It’s very easy to clean. Simplicity at its finest. Sure, you don’t have some of the finer luxury things like big thick shag carpet… but that stuff’s never really meant a lot to me.”
But a trailer wasn’t always the plan for the superstar, in fact, it all kind of happened by accident. When his car couldn’t make it to the top of a hilly country round, Rock got out to take in his surroundings and fell in love with the Nashville skyline view.
With impatience setting in, when he discovered that he could have a trailer that could be custom designed and arrive within just two weeks, he was sold. His trailer was featured in his latest music video for his single “Po-Dunk” which was released in June of 2017. In the video you will see the moss covered trailer in all its beauty.
Kid Rock prefers a simple life, although there are a few things that make sense for a man of his success – his trailer is situated on his hugeeee 102-acre plot of land and he says one thing he will never give up is his private jet. I mean, would you? Oh, and that Rolls-Royce in the driveway. Missed that? Yea, go check out that photo again.
KID ROCK’S MALIBU HOUSE
But what exactly did the musician lose when moving out of his luxurious Malibu Mansion? He sold the gated property which hides the 8,305 square-foot home boasting hand-carved wooden doors, large open plan living areas and dining rooms with floor to ceiling french doors, 5 bedrooms, 4 of which are guest bedrooms with their own private bathrooms, a master suite with two walk-in closets, a large sitting area, a glass-enclosed shower and a private terrace. As well as a gym and sauna, an office and an outdoor shower and pool which overlooks a guest house in the distance. Not bad right?
Does the rockstar miss the luxury of the above? Eh, no not really! He says, “It’s not like I require a lot. You know, I’ve learned to downsize through the years and it’s really made me happier.”
As you probably know, he’s Detroit’s #1 fan! So obviously, he’s got a gorgeous place just outside the city. It’s believed that he spends a lot of time here. Oh, and he has an Alabama estate!
What is Kid Rock real name?
Kid Rock’s real name is Robert James Ritchie. Born on January 17th, 1971, he is known for his rap and hip-hop plus country rock music career, and for being one of the most successful musicians in those categories for years. The singer-songwriter has won multGrammyrammy awards and sold an estimated 30 million albums worldwide (!!!).
Kid Rock was born to parents William (Bill) and Susan Ritchie and grew up in a successful household spread across six acres of land and located in the small town of Romeo, Michigan. The house, that was put on the market in 2016, is complete with an indoor jacuzzi, five huge bedrooms, and an apple orchard out the back where a young Kid Rock used to spend time picking ripe fruits.
Growing tired of the small town life at a very early age, Kid Rock started to gain an interest in rap and breakdancing. He formed his own breakdance crew as well as began DJ’ing and rapping in clubs across Detroit. His first single “Grits Sandwiches for Breakfast” landed him a spot on Ice Cubes tour in 1990 and from then on, his career in the music industry started to become successful, although it was a fairly slow start.
How much does Kid Rock make?
Kid Rock is wealthy, that’s for sure. But although from a well-to-do family, his own money didn’t come quickly for the superstar. His career started slowly and it was only when his song ‘Devil Without a Cause’ was released in 1998 that his career was supercharged.
The song sold an impressive 13 million copies across the globe. In the years following, he went on to release many more triumphant hits, including ‘Rock’n’Roll Jesus’ in 2007 which went TRIPLE platinum.
With so much success under his belt, what is Kid Rock’s net worth? His net worth is an extremely impressive $80 million. What does he do with all that cash? The star has said, “I’m always buying more guns, I have everything from a Civil War cannon to an MP5 machine gun and old police guns.”
In 2013, with a net worth that big, Kid Rock decided to cap his tour tickets at just $20. And I think even a free beer came with it! Compared to the exceptionally over-priced of many other musicians today, that’s a pretty good deal. When talking about his tour price, he said, “I’m lucky enough that I can afford to take a pay cut. Let’s give the fans the best deal because even at $20, there’s plenty of money there.” Awww, thanks, pal!!
