What Is Kid Rock's Greatest Accomplishment?

At 22, Kid Rock's girlfriend at the time, Kelley Russell, gave birth to their son, Robert Ritchie Jr., who Rock calls Junior. About that situation, Kid Rock told Rolling Stone, "Hey, I was wild. But I showed up to work on Monday to be a father."
This... this is why we love Kid. He knew he had to take care of his kid. Kid and his kid.
Junior is now in his final year at Belmont University in Nashville and is a father himself. "He really is a great kid," says Rock. "That's my best accomplishment by far. I’m nervous for him, because I know it's a lot of work. But he’s got a good girl. I’m excited for him, but he's gotta give up a lot of shit to have to take care of that baby. I said, 'You know how your friends are telling you I'm fucking rich? I fucking am. You're not. And if I wrote you a check, it'd be doing a disservice to you. I'm rooting for you, but I need to stand by the sidelines and watch it go down."
Wow! That's a father teaching his son. There is more at rollingstone.com.
