It could be argued that he sold out a long time ago, but this confirms it. From yahoo news:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - When Alan Jackson (news) sang "Gone Country" several years ago, everybody thought it was a satire. But it's getting more real every day. The Tennessean reports Poison lead singer Bret Michaels is close to signing a country deal, on the new indie label Lofton Creek Records.

Michaels lived in Nashville for a few years in the late 1990s and was back there this month spending time with singer-songwriter Jeffrey Steele (news), who recently signed with Lofton Creek. Reportedly, Michaels is planning a country version of his song "Every Rose Has Its Thorn." And he's already dipped his toes into a country career. He makes a cameo in Tracy Lawrence (news)'s upcoming video for "It's All How You Look At It."

Michaels web site confirms the singer's transition to country. The home page shows the former pop star donning a cowboy hat in photos with Brad Paisley (news), Uncle Kracker and Keith Urban (news). He also reports that he will release a country CD called "The Other Side of Me" later this year.

(1) Well, he's been wearing cowboy hats for some time now, so that's not a shocker.

(2) Every Rose Has Its Thorn has ALWAYS been a country song if you ask me.

(3) Apparently, boning Pamela Anderson has something to do with the cock star to country crossover (see Kid Rock). Expect the forthcoming Tommy Lee country album "There's A Snake In My Boots (And In My Pants)" to hit stores next year.

Don't forget about Ronnie Keel, who may have been the first to front a hair metal and country band. But Keel was more speed metal than glam I guess. Nonetheless, the example might work.

Hey, people's taste in music can grow and mature. Ten years ago I never would have thought that I would end up listening to country music (at least a few artists).

Not to nit pick, but Keel was never anything BUT a Hair Band.

BY selling out, does that mean he is going to make music for money not art? If so, I think Bret Michaels sold out before "Look What the Cat Dragged In" was released. :)

Indeed. But I was alluding to the people he is hanging out with these days: Keith Urban, Uncle Kracker and Brad Paisley.

But I can guarantee you both Keith Urban AND Brad Paisley are way better guitar players than any of Bret's old buddies.

That's freaking funny Salami! Maybe he could cover Garth Brooks' "Ain't Going Down Till The Sun Comes Up"?

Are you implying here than there's a homemade Kid Rock sex video out there, or was it just a Freudian slip?

Neither. A cock star is someone who engages in cock rock.
