Kid Rock & Sheryl Crow Explore The Pain Of Heartache In Video For “Picture”

Kid Rock & Sheryl Crow Released Their “Picture” Duet In 2002

Kid Rock had a big year in 2001. That year he released his album Cocky, which was unlike anything he had ever done before.

Previously, Rock jumped around from genre to genre, focusing specifically on hip-hop and rap. But he decided to go in a different direction when it came time for him to make Cocky.

The record was Rock’s first experience recording music that leaned in the country and blues direction. No one knew how Rock’s country debut would go at the time. But as we now know, it ended up being a success.

In the years that have passed since Cocky‘s release, Rock has found himself a place in the country music community. While a great deal of his country success can be contributed to his 2008 smash hit “All Summer Long,” it all started with a song from Cocky.

The Duo Demonstrated A Lot Of Chemistry In Their Music Video

“Picture” was released as a single off of Cocky in 2002. You’re probably used to hearing the version between Rock and Sheryl Crow, but did you have any idea there was another version as well?

When Rock was unable to get permission from Crow’s record label to release “Picture” as a single, he recorded it again with country singer Allison Moorer. This version was the one that was sent out to radio stations, but some still ended up playing Crow’s version anyway.

Regardless of which version they heard, it seems that listeners loved the song. It claimed the fourth spot on the Billboard Hot 100, making it Rock’s most successful U.S. single to date.

Although Moorer was the featured guest in the commercial version of “Picture,” Rock invited Crow to film the song’s music video with him. A true work of art, the video dives deep into the painful feelings associated with heartache.

Most of the video takes place in a recording studio, where Rock and Crow sit together and sing. Shorter clips flash throughout these scenes, typically showing Rock alone as he longs after the woman who got away. These clips sometimes appear in black and white, adding further to the mournful tone of the song.
