BamaJam visitors got to hear musician Kid Rock on Saturday night. He made a pit stop at Troy University Saturday afternoon looking for apparel.

At the time, Troy was hosting a kids basketball camp. Assistant coach David Felix and his wife were in the concessions area.

"This guy comes up and asks for a jersey," Felix said. "I said, 'Well, we don't sell jerseys. All we're selling is t-shirts.'

"He said he had gone to the bookstore and they told him to come here. I said we didn't sell them, but he was wanting to wear one that night."

Thankfully, Felix's wife Mary had a keen eye for music.

"She said, 'You're Kid Rock, aren't you?' He goes, 'Yeah,' Felix said. "I wouldn't have known him if he had given me some clues. I went and got him an old home basketball jersey that said Trojans on the front of it, and I heard he wore it for at least an hour."

Kid Rock started the show with an Alabama football jersey on, but later took it off and sported his Troy Trojans jersey. Felix said he knew who Kid Rock was, but didn't recognize him.

"It caught us off guard," Felix said. "My wife got a picture with him and some parents were coming in and out and they got a picture with him. Coach (Don Maestri) showed up, but he would have had as good of a chance of recognizing him as I did."
