First came the snub from former donors. Then liberal New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd turned on him. Even Singer Democrat Jackson Browne said his support for Obama is “Running on Empty.”

And now, Kid Rock is done singing the president’s praises and will instead perform at the Republican National Convention in August, Politico reported.

The singer, who hails from Detroit, will join Lynyrd Skynyrd, Trace Adkins, Ronnie Dunn, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Robert Randolph, and Night Ranger and other rock and country music acts at the Tampa event, according to Politico.

Kid Rock backed Barack Obama in the 2008 election and this time has thrown his support behind fellow Michigan native Mitt Romney.

Romney has been using Kid Rock's "Born Free" as a campaign song and appeared with the singer in Michigan in February. The singer endorsed Romney at the time and the convention appearance will cement his backing of the Republican nominee.

Dowd criticized the president in her last column and donors are not giving anywhere near 2008 levels so far in the campaign. Like the 2008 donors, Browne said he remains “involved politically” but won’t raise money for Obama this time around.
