Country-rock rebel Kid Rock has raised more than $375,000 for various causes, with a few concerts left for his 12-date club tour in support of local charities. The goodwill outing was inspired by ‘Care,’ the fifth single from Kid’s most recent album, ‘Born Free.’

“The song says ‘the least that I can do is care’ — and I want to put my money where my mouth is,” Kid tells Billboard. “Everyone knows that Detroit is hurting. But I want to show that even though we don’t have a lot on our own plate, it doesn’t mean the people of my hometown don’t have compassion to share with others all over the country. At the end of the day we’re all Detroit, we’re one country, one family.”

Kid Rock is scheduled to appear on ‘CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute,’ performing a special version of ‘Care’ for the live broadcast. Hosted by Anderson Cooper, the star-studded telecast will spotlight the accomplishments of the Top 10 CNN Heroes, with each humanitarian receiving $50,000 in recognition of their achievements. The show will announce the winner of the public-voted CNN Hero of the Year, which is accompanied by a grand prize of $250,000. Click here to vote.

Tune in Dec. 11 at 8:00 PM ET on CNN to catch Kid Rock’s live performance.

Nov. 29 – Midland Theatre – Kansas City, Mo
