Kid Rock told CNN that he had a chance to meet up with President Obama on Sunday night (December 2nd) at the Kennedy Center Honors, where Led Zeppelin, Dustin Hoffman, David Letterman and others were paid tribute for their contributions to the arts and culture. Rock, who campaigned for Republican nominee Mitt Romney during the 2012 presidential contest, said that he and the newly re-elected President put their differences behind them.

Rock said, "It was nice. I saw the president tonight. He said, 'I'm still here.' I said, 'No hard feelings.'" Rock added, "You cross your fingers, you try to move forward, you hope for the best. You respect the office of the president of the United States, and the great thing is in four years, we get to choose again."

Rock took a bigger role in this year's campaign than he ever has before, letting Romney use his song "Born Free" as a theme song and performing at several rallies for the candidate. Rock told us he had no regrets about it: "It was a great experience. I learned a lot about just that whole poop show behind the political window (laughs). Never my intention to go out and preach politics to people. I always said during these rallies and stuff that I'd leave that to the pros. But it was pretty interesting overall. We had some fun doing it, man -- a lot of it was just like paid rehearsals."

Rock's new album, Rebel Soul, entered the Billboard album chart at Number Five last week, selling 146,000 copies in its first week of release. Rebel Soul is Rock's seventh Top 10 album.

Rock will play two shows in Florida on December 30th and 31st before launching a North American trek on February 2nd in Kansas City, Missouri. Support acts on the trip will be Buckcherry and Hellbound Glory.
