Ed "Punch" Andrews is retiring after releasing Kid Rock's #1 album 'Rock & Roll Jesus'.
Kid Rock sold over 170,000 copies of his new album 'Rock & Roll Jesus' this week, and with that comes the change. The singer has split from his manager of seven years, Ed "Punch" Andrew, to give him a retirement.
Andrews has reportedly planned the retirement as soon as 'Rock & Roll Jesus' is put on the shelves. Sources said that Rock has replaced him with Vector Management that also manages of Bon Jovi and Lynyrd Skynyrd.
'Rock & Roll Jesus' opened at #1 at Billboard Hot 200 this week. Rock will continue to promote the album in a theater tour and several TV appearances.
According to Billboard.com, 'Amen' will be released as the second single from the album instead of the rumored 'Roll On'. It will be played on radio outlets later this month.
