It should come as no surprise that Detroit, Michigan is ground zero for real American rock n’ roll. From Ted Nugent to Iggy Pop & The Stooges, all the way up to the present day with Jack White, the Motor City has given us some of the greatest rockers of all time, and high on that list is singer-songwriter Bob Seger. The “Ramblin’ Gamblin’ Man” is back with a new album Ride Out which is garnering up rave reviews with its mix of powerful originals and astute cover choices that showcase all Seger’s talents as a writer and performer.
The album was recorded in Nashville but features a tribute to his hometown in the song “Detroit Made.” Penned by famed songwriter John Hiatt and revved into overdrive by Bob and the boys, it was the album’s lead off single and was released at the Woodward Dream Cruise custom car show in Detroit. Find out why Bob choose the song and why he’s still proud to call himself Detroit made in this exclusive interview clip.
