Picture

Kid Rock



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

"Picture" is a confusingly-billed song. Originally, Sheryl Crow was supposed to do the song with Kid Rock. That got shot down due to contract disputes between Atlantic and A&M Records. So Rock re-did the duet with Allison Moorer. Now it charted on Billboard's Hot 100 as "Kid Rock featuring Allison Moorer or Sheryl Crow," because some radio stations played the official single and some used the Crow version from the album, not caring beans about piffling record company contracts. The writing credits are Kid Rock and Sheryl Crow, if that helps. That's also Crow in the video.
My, look who's come a long way since Grits Sandwiches for Breakfast! Could anyone have listened to Kid Rock (real name Robert James "Bob" Ritchie) in the '90s and told you that his best days were ahead of him when his highest charting song would be a slow, soulful, country tear-jerker? It was certainly out of character, but not unprecedented: Kid Rock's former DJ Uncle Kracker had a big Easy Listening hit two years earlier with "Follow Me." Since the success of "Picture," Kid Rock has had numerous duet partners from the country music world, including Kellie Pickler, Martina McBride, and Miranda Lambert. This was also Sheryl Crow's second-most successful single after "All I Wanna Do."
Yes, this song does sound a lot like The Golden Girls Theme. So much so, that visitors to our message boards asked if it was a remake.
