This song was quite a departure from the rap-rock songs Kid Rock was known for, but it wasn't his first foray into country music: His 1999 single "Only God Knows Why
" is a country ballad and was the biggest hit from his breakthrough album Devil Without A Cause
, going to #19 on the Hot 100. "Picture" became the biggest chart hit of his career, going to #4. Rock's DJ, Uncle Kracker, had an easy listening hit of his own with "Follow Me
" in 2000.
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.
