Country music legend Kid Rock told Fox News host and Daily Caller co-founder Tucker Carlson that people are “sick of seeing history torn to the ground” while speaking on Tuesday’s episode of “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
Carlson and Kid Rock discussed the potential destruction of Beechwood Hall, an antebellum house outside of Nashville, Tennessee, that reportedly sits in disrepair. “So, you have your own house — why are you so interested in this house and what happens to it?” Carlson asked the singer.
“I think, like so many other people in this country, we’re sick of seeing history torn to the ground, whether it be in the form of monuments, statues and now something so important here in Nashville, like the former home of Hank Williams, Beechwood Hall,” Rock said.

Beechwood Hall, an antebellum home, is one of the few homes to survive the Civil War. Country music stars Tim McGraw and Faith Hill lived there prior to California fund manager Larry Keel purchasing the historic landmark in 2021. Keel is also a donor to the nonprofit Heritage Foundation of Williamson County, Carlson said. The nonprofit is purportedly suggesting Beechwood Hall could soon be demolished.
“Where does this end? We kind of all knew that from the beginning, once this fiasco started, that it’s never going to end,” Rock said.
Rock then said it feels as though Californians are invading Tennessee, with Keel apparently being the latest example. “A lot of people say it and they say it under their breath, but they’re scared to say it out loud, so once again I’ll be the guy. They come here leaving these woke policies from these cities for better schools, lower taxes, lower crime … We kind of tell them, leave your effin’ politics at the state from which you’re coming.”
“I don’t think there’s anything more important in country music — if not, American music — than Hank Williams, the greatest songwriter of all times,” Rock said.
