Carl, I'm pretty sure the violin on "Paper in Fire" was Lisa Germano. She was a member of Mellencamp's band until the mid '90s when she left to do her own solo thing. "Our Country" was released in 2006 or so... so the violin was played by a different girl.
That Kid Rock song is pretty slick. Almost too slick... like maybe it was written specifically for use in commercials?
"Hey, Kid... can you come up with a catchy tune that we can use in a series of TV ads?"
