by Chris Haney

On Tuesday afternoon, Kid Rock fired back at his critics and the media after revealing how successful his new single is in a post on Instagram.

In November, the singer released the defiant “Don’t Tell Me How to Live.” Now, he’s followed that up with another single titled “Ala-F*****-Bama.” The song was just released on all major streaming services on Friday, Dec. 17. It’s already shot up the Rock singles chart to No. 1, and Kid Rock is making sure people know it.

The Michigan native shared a screenshot from his phone of Apple Music’s Rock singles. He circled both of his singles that sit at No. 1 and No. 7 on Apple Music’s chart. The musician made sure to rub it in his critics’ faces in true Kid Rock fashion. He reminded everyone that his songs haven’t been played on the radio and they’ve had no promotion, but they’ve still topped the streaming list. The 50-year-old went on to thank all his fans for their support. Additionally, he announced that 23 more songs are ready for release.

“Merry Christmas to me! lol! No radio, No promotion, No nothing… except for all the stupid a** critics and media that keep taking the bait!! Thanks to all the fans out there for the support, they can’t and will NEVER beat us! Glad your diggin’ the new tunes – have not even got to my best stuff yet!! (Got 23 more ready to go!!) Stay tuned!” Kid Rock wrote on Instagram.
