"Kid Rock has helped make Jim Beam's decades-long music legacy even stronger," said seventh-generation Master Distiller and Jim Beam's great-grandson Fred Noe. "We figure it's time to pour him a drink or two, and we need our fans to help us make Kid Rock's perfect cocktail. It's a tough job, but somebody's got to do it!"
This year marks the fifth consecutive year that Kid Rock and Jim Beam have come together to bring legendary music experiences to fans across the country. Since partnering back in 2009, the World's No. 1 Bourbon and Kid Rock have launched breakthrough consumer programs that have provided one-of-a-kind opportunities for music and bourbon fans alike. This year builds on those groundbreaking music experiences as Jim Beam and Kid Rock honor their loyal fans with Jim Beam's Mix for Kid Rock Contest. Jim Beam is also sponsoring Kid Rock's 2013 concert tour, which kicked off earlier this year and concludes this September in Tampa, Fla.
