During an appearance on the Howard Stern Show this morning (Oct. 24), Kid Rock directly addressed the rumors. A website also sold Kid Rock for Senate merchandise.

Kid Rock first teased a run in a July 12 post showing a "Kid Rock for US Senate" yard sign.

"F**k no, I'm not running for Senate. Like, who couldn't f-ing figure that out?" he said, sounding amused. Tickets go on sale November 3, the same day as his next album, Sweet Southern Sugar, is released. "Are you kidding me?"

He announced Tuesday on Howard Stern's show he's releasing a new album titled Sweet Southern Sugar next month and will tour next year. "I'm going on tour, too-which no one's going to print". "Are you f--ing sh-ing me?"

Rock said the summer and fall con was "the most creative thing I've ever done".

The stunt worked. His "bid for U.S. Senate" was covered by the press around the U.S.

Some observers thought Kid Rock, a Republican, had a legitimate chance of defeating Stabenow, in part because President Donald Trump won MI in 2016.

Rock said that as public hype grew around the Senate talk this year, even his people who were "in on the joke" started to take it seriously. I have people who work for me, they're on the in, I'm like, '[expletive] no we're not doing it, but let's roll with it for a little while.
