Kid Rock: Jukebox hero
Kid Rock had a good year on jukeboxes in 2015. The Detroit rock and roller, who released his “First Kiss” album in February, was the fifth most-played artist on TouchTunes jukeboxes in 2015, the company announced in its year-end report. Rock topped the charts in Michigan and Florida, while his “All Summer Long” was the 8th most-played rock song overall. The most-played artist of 2015 was Eric Church, followed by AC/DC, Jason Aldean and Luke Bryan. Elsewhere, Detroit’s Big Sean scored the year’s most jukeboxed R&B/Hip-Hop song with “IDFWU.”
Rohrbach lands big role
Good news, bad news for Kelly Rohrbach. The good news: The model/actress has been cast in the Pamela Anderson role in the upcoming “Baywatch” movie starring the Rock (yes, there’s an upcoming “Baywatch” movie starring the Rock; of course there’s an upcoming “Baywatch” movie starring the Rock), stealing a role we just assumed would go to Kate Upton. Now, the bad news: Usmagazine.com reported Monday that Rohrbach has split from her boyfriend of several months, one Leonardo DiCaprio, because of their busy schedules. So when Leo picks up his Oscar in February, don’t expect to see Rohrbach by his side.
