Who sings background vocals on Kid Rock’s All Summer Long?

454256122_m

As we at  Songspeak recently learned, it’s Andre N. Jones a.k.a. Drizzrod who sings the backup on Kid Rock’s song, All Summer Long, which samples Lynryd Skynyrd‘s Sweet Home Alabama as well as Warren Zevon‘s Werewolves of London.

From Andre’s bio:
Andre’s style is a Gumbo. A Stew that combines Spoken Word with hip hop, Gospel, Funk and R&B. The effort is intended to probe important issues of current times while remaining musically entertaining.

Kind of weird that SO MANY PEOPLE thought that it was Bob Seger. We were definitely fooled here at Songspeak.

Kid Rock’s music video for All Summer Long is here also.

And while you’re at it, let us know how off the mark we were:

Do you think we were crazy to think it was Bob Seger? It sounds like him, right?

  1. I was wrong too. I thought it was Travis Tritt. Oh well.

  2. @Karen
    Lots of people think it’s Travis Tritt or Bob Seger. We were fooled here at Songspeak.

  3. I honestly thought it was Tim McGraw! but i knew that it was the music from werewolves of london & sweet home alabama, the very first time i heard it!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. I thought it sounded like a Van Zandt

  5. I totally thought it was Travis Tritt. I was shocked that it wasn’t.

  6. He doesn’t quite sound like Seger, very close, but something is a bit off. On the other hand, the whole song has a very Seger feel to it, despite the sampling of ‘Werewolves of London’ and ‘Sweet Home Alabama’, and the mention of ‘Blister in the Sun’ the vocal range, the way the backups come in at the end, and the subject matter is very Seger.
    There is even a discussion on in the Detroit News about how much the song is influenced by ‘Night Moves’. Up until about a year ago Kid Rock and Bob Seger even had the same manager.
    With all of this evoking Seger, it is no wonder that one searches for Bob Seger in the song.

  7. @Karen – I thought it was Travis Tritt, as well. It sounds so exactly like him when he lets loose, and really SINGS.

  8. Hey everybody,
    I’m as shocked as everybody else! Although the background vocalist on the song has the same name as I, those vocals are not me. I wish I could claim that it was but it’s not. Thanks guys.
    -Dre

  9. @andre – How many people have asked if it’s you?

  10. It sounded like Michael Bolton to me…

  11. I THOUGHT IT WAS JAMES OTTO SINGING THE BACKUP VOCALS ON ALL SUMMER LONG GOOD STRONG VOICE. GREAT MUSIC

  12. an exact copy of such a choir was sung by the formerly very successfull English band named Smokey, and they had an almost identical hit on a CD way back in the 90s with this, so it is “covered”. I therefore presumed they did it (like in former years when they supported solo Agneta of formerly ABBA with their talent)

  13. @Chris David – Do you have a link to the song or the name of the album? What was the name of the song?

  14. I thought it sounds like Ruben Stoddard, which would fit with the “Sweet Home Alabama” thing…

  15. I still think it sounds like Travis Tritt

  16. It IS travis tritt. Even ifbits not it is.
    Case closed. At best it’s Drizzrod doing
    His impersonation of Frankie doing elvis
    Doing sammy doing Travis Tritt.

    Complete with schincter shaped mouth.

  17. MY NAME IS THORNETTA DAVIS AND I AM ONE OF THE BACKGROUND SINGERS ON KID ROCK’S ALL SUMMER LONG. YOU HAVE THE WRONG ANDRE JONES. I WAS NOT ADNRE N. JONES AKA DRIZZIOD WHO PERFORMED ON THE SONG ALL SUMMER LONG. IT IS ANDRE DELANO JONES FROM DETROIT MICHIGAN. YOU CAN FIND HIM ON MYSPACE. PLEASE MAKE THE CORRECTION.

  19. Hello everyone,

    My name is Andre’ Delano Jones “AKA” Dre’ Delano. I am here to set the record straight. I am the the vocalist singing the adlib vocals on Kid Rocks “All Summer Long”. I am from Detroit, currently living in Akron, OH now. The funny thing is, Myself, Thornetta Davis & Barbara payton all did two adlib tracks in the studio, we did not know what was going to be used. I brought the CD Oct,8th or 10th and was shocked it was the majority of My adlib that was used! So there you have. Too any none believers, I have the Check Stub and Double Platinum Album on my wall! FYI, Never really listened to Bob Seger, Don’t know who Travis Tritt or Drizzrod are, but I’m sure are all great singer. Bottom
    line is when I went in the booth, I just did me! off the top of my head what I thought the song needed. I’m a R&B singer to the core that just tries to do good music!!!!!!

    Thanks For Listen

    Dre’ Delano

  23. @Melanie – Talented singer? Talented at being very gay? Both?

  24. @ Melanie, I got your Gay, You dumb bitch, where the F@#& do get off calling somebody Gay, you don’teven know me. It’s assholes like you who start SH@# and stupid rumor’s for no reason at all. I’ll be at Floods May 7th & 8th come down and say what you have to say to my face. Sorry Songspeak for my harshness, but when someone personally attacks me for no reason with lies I take it personal.

    Dre’ Delano

  25. @Melanie – Who The Hell are you?

  26. Oh sorry, Yes it was him that song on Kid Rocks song. He brags about having the platinum album to prove it. Just trying to stay on topic about the faggot. Just go to his my space page and look and his shiny pink lips.

  27. @Katrina – We don’t condone censorship here at Songspeak, but we’ve removed the posts referring to Andre’s family members and personal info. Obviously there are some personal issues at play here, and that’s fine…go nuts! But please leave family members and/or personal info out of it.

  28. Dre Delano is gay. I know for a fact. These ladies are telling the truth about him. However, be nice ladies. You sound like you have been tricked by a down low bro. Be more careful in the future and you won’t have to be so unhappy. But yes, you are correct, he is gay as hell!!!!

  29. By the way. Look at his post to the melanie lady above. He calls her down to the club on a specific day to fight her. Soooooo Gaaaaayyyyy!
