Last year at the 2009 CMT Music Awards after party, Jaron of Jaron And The Long Road To Love, was approached by Kid Rock who told him that he thought he had everything it takes to be successful in music. “Kid Rock couldn’t have been more complimentary or nicer. He said he’d bet anything I was gonna be a big star. It was incredibly flattering, but I also chalked most of that up to that fact that we had been drinking,” recalls Jaron.
One year later with “Pray For You” a week away from crossing the 500,000 sales mark, Jaron walked in the 2010 CMT Music Awards after party. Within minutes he spotted Kid Rock and wanted to see if he had remembered the prediction he made. Jaron describes the reunion: “I walked up to Kid Rock and before I could say a word he said with a huge grin ‘was I right?’ He said he had been looking forward to seeing me tonight so that he could tell me how happy he was for me. I couldn’t believe that one of the biggest stars in the world even knew who I was, let alone wanted to congratulate me.” Jaron’s single “Pray For You” is within the top 20 on the Country radio charts and this week celebrates 24 consecutive weeks of single sales increases.
Jaron And The Long Road To Love debuts his solo album Getting Dressed In The Dark on June 22nd.
