LEIPERS FORK, TN (WSMV) - Musician Kid Rock has been announced as the Grand Marshal for the 2019 Leiper's Fork Christmas Parade.

Kid Rock, stage name for Robert James Ritchie, marched in the parade last year which was then Grand Marshaled by John Schneider of The Dukes of Hazzard fame.

Kid Rock was originally slated to be the Grand Marshal of the Nashville Christmas Parade in December 2018 but was let go from his duties after an appearance on Fox News Channel's morning program, Fox & Friends, during which he called co-host of ABC's The View Joy Behar an expletive. He was replaced with Antioch Waffle House shooting hero James Shaw Jr.

The 2019 Leiper's Fork Christmas Parade will be held on Saturday, Dec. 14 at 2 p.m. Leiper's Fork is located in an unincorporated area of Williamson County.
