As part of Fox Nation’s ‘Tucker Carlson Originals: Life of a Rockstar,’ Carlson interviewed singer-songwriter Kid Rock who refused to apologize for a 2019 rant at his Nashville honky tonk.
Carlson asked Rock during the interview if he regrets his profanity-laced rant against Oprah Winfrey and the rockstar replied NO.
Rock, whose real name is Robert James Ritchie, told Carlson at the time he made the remarks about Oprah, saying “A drunk man’s words are a sober man’s thoughts, I own what I said.”

More details of this story from The New York Post report:
Despite fierce backlash, Kid Rock is refusing to back down from his boozy 2019 rant, which saw the rocker attack Oprah Winfrey by name during a performance in Nashville.
The 51-year-old rapper dropped the bombshell during the latest episode of “Tucker Carson Originals” on Fox Nation.
“A drunk man’s words are a sober man’s thoughts — I own what I said,” the singer, whose real name is Robert James Ritchie, told conservative pundit Carlson, 53.
The “Redneck Paradise” rocker was referring to the infamous 2019 incident, during which he’d trashed the billionaire media mogul on stage at the Big Ass Honky Tonk Rock N’ Roll Steakhouse, which he owns in Nashville.
“Oprah Winfrey is like, ‘Hey, I just want women to believe in this s- -t,’” the “Cowboy” singer said in the video, uploaded by TMZ. “F- -k her, she can suck d- -k sideways.”
‘I don’t apologize to anybody. I’m not an Oprah Winfrey fan.’

Local 12 News also reported:
In an interview with Tucker Carlson, singer-songwriter Kid Rock refused to apologize for a 2019 rant at his Nashville honky tonk where he verbally attacked Oprah Winfrey and others.
Rock defended himself to Carlson, saying “A drunk man’s words are a sober man’s thoughts, I own what I said.”
The feature interview was the latest episode of “Tucker Carlson Originals: Life of a Rockstar.”
Video from TMZ in 2019 showed Rock’s profanity-laced rant where he slurred his words on stage. He called out Oprah, Joy Behar, and Kathie Lee Gifford.
For Kid Rock, who spent most of the COVID-19 pandemic working on his recently released “Bad Reputation” album, the drunken rant was very much in character for him.
Kid Rock gives Tucker Carlson a tour of his Nashville ranch, in “Life of a Rockstar,” which includes a camouflage double-wide trailer that he’s been living in while building a replica White House nearby.
The full episode can be seen on Fox Nation, where it streams.
