The sticker on Kid Rock's 2006 LIVE TRUCKER CD warns that the disc includes no bonus tracks, exclusive footage, or remixes, so fans of the Kid that are hungry for new and unreleased material might be disappointed. Yet with the help of his Twisted Brown Trucker Band and a wildly enthusiastic crowd, the Kid lays down his particular brand of "hick-hop" with plenty of honky tonk ferocity and b-boy swagger. "Son of Detroit," "American Bad Ass," and "Picture," a duet with Gretchen Wilson, are only some of the highlights of this live set.
Rolling Stone (p.94) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[B]etween sturdy blue-collar stuff like 'Son of Detroit' and muscular grooves from his crack band, LIVE TRUCKER maintains an old-school party-rock vibe."
