SHARE Kid Rock knows how to rock a birthday party

He’s “Kid Rock and the real McCoy” and the Detroit rocker endeared himself to one superfan Monday night.

Dan McGurk, a tried-and-true Kid Rock fan who has Down Syndrome, spent months writing as well as shooting video messages to his idol to invite him to his 30th birthday party, according to the Detroit Free Press. McGurk tried to get his party on the rocker’s calendar for months, no word if he sent an evite as well.

Kid Rock showed up announced to sing McGurk “Happy Birthday” as well as give him a few gifts, including a signed guitar.

When McGurk blows out the candles, he turns to the rocker and says, “My wish is that the American Bad Ass is here,” in reference to Kid Rock’s famous 2000 tune.

Here is McGurk’s video invite.
