After months of speculation, Kid Rock has officially revealed his plans to run for political office -- or, more accurately, that he has none. On Tuesday (Oct. 24), Rock announced that he will not be running for Senate in 2018 ... but he will be releasing new music in November and embarking on a tour in January.

"F--k no, I’m not running for Senate, are you f--king kidding me?” Rock told Howard Stern during an appearance on The Howard Stern Show (quote via the Detroit News). “Who couldn’t figure that out?”

Instead, Rock will release a new album, Sweet Southern Sugar, on Nov. 3. The record's 10 tracks include the previously released "Greatest Show on Earth" and "Po-Dunk," as well as "Tennessee Mountain Top," "Raining Whiskey" and "Grandpa's Jam;" a complete track listing can be found below. A press release reports that the record "ranges from country to classic rock, with a little rap sprinkled in between, and highlights Kid Rock’s armory of talent, which transcends a single genre."

Additionally, beginning on Jan. 19, Rock will be on the road for his Greatest Show on Earth Tour. The trek will start at Nashville's Bridgestone Arena and include 21 shows throughout North America. A complete list of dates for the tour is below, and more information is available on
