A year removed from his outburst that cost him his spot as grand marshall of the Nashville Christmas Parade, Kid Rock finds himself back in the helm.
He was removed as the Nashville parade’s grand marshall in 2018 after his remarks about The View’s Joy Behar after he called her a a “b—” on live TV during a Fox News interview.
Event organizers of the Tennessee-based Christmas event, Leiper’s Fork Parade, revealed Kid Rock would be back to serving as the grand marshall this year on a Facebook post on Tuesday. He walked in that parade last year after he was ousted from the Nashville event.

When he learned he was removed from the position of the Nashville parade, he took to Instagram to share his thoughts.
“Well folks, it is official…My parade has been rained on!” he wrote. “But in the end, it is not about me. It is about the kids and the wonderful work they do at Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital. Either way, myself, family and especially my granddaughter, are gonna enjoy today. Sending well wishes for a break in the rain and a successful parade. I love Nashville and the people she holds.”
More recently, Kid Rock has found himself in the news regarding comments he made in a restaurant about Oprah Winfrey along with Behar, once again. He recounted how he was asked to go on Oprah but ended up not to because of differing viewpoints. He commented on the issue on social media.
