VIDEO: Kid Rock opens NFL season

Kid Rock helped the NFL kick off the 2011 season Thursday night in Green Bay, as the defending Super Bowl champion Packers hosted the New Orleans Saints.

Along with Maroon 5 and Lady Antebellum, Rock headlined the pre-game event with an hour-long set filled with his hits, although not much of it made it to the official league broadcast….yet.

On Saturday, NBC will feature some of the musical performances on “NFL Kickoff 2011: Back To Football,” a special which will feature Thursday night’s material along with Jon Bon Jovi performing 'America the Beautiful' from an NYC firehouse as part of a tribute to 9/11 first responders.

Rock has been touring this year in support of his “Born Free” album, and NBC featured the title track on the pre-game special Thursday evening before the Packers-Saints matchup.
