Vince Neil Says ‘Young Country Is the New Rock ‘n’ Roll’
At 53 years old, Vince Neil is doing things he never thought he would do — and he’s impacting country music as we know it. Neil and his band Motley Crue have a huge group of country stars behind them for the ‘Country Music Tribute to Motley Crue’ album. Because of his involvement in the album, he attended the CMT Awards.
He may not listen to a whole lot of country, but he says that country music now is taking the place of rock ‘n’ roll. “There really is no like up-and-coming rock ‘n roll … Young country is really the new rock ‘n’ roll, and that’s what’s pretty exciting.”
He’s proving to be right now that he’s singing with Moore for his version of ‘Home Sweet Home.’ The song is actually going to be Moore’s next single — combining rock ‘n roll with country on radio.
