Press release:

No rocker embodies the “Spirit of the Wild” more than Ted Nugent, and he’s ramping up in 2008 like never before.

His multi-cultural ammo: a new CD and DVD (Sweden Rocks), book (Ted, White & Blue: The Nugent Manifesto), film (Beer For My Horses) and concert tour (Rolling Thunder 2008).

There’s also Ted’s new song 'I Am The NRA', which he’ll premiere at the 2008 NRA National Convention in Louisville, Kentucky May 17-18 where’s he’s a presenter. Ted was recently re-elected for his fifth term on the Board of Directors of the NRA.

Rock’s ultimate guitar frontman has just released an incendiary new live album Sweden Rocks - recorded during his EuroBlitz 06 Tour at the Sweden Rocks Festival - with the companion DVD out June 10, both via Eagle Rock Entertainment.

His latest book - comprising ten chapters on how to fix America - is titled Ted, White & Blue: The Nugent Manifesto and is due in August via Regnery Publishing. Texas Governor Rick Perry salutes Ted in the book as a “human tornado” and goes on to say: “He lives life at mach speeds, boldly pouring himself into matters deeply personal to him. His efforts to support U.S. troops wounded in the defense of freedom and his selfless devotion to children with life-threatening illnesses are just two indications of the gentle heart that beats beneath the surface of this wild-eyed warrior.”

Ted will make his feature film debut this summer in the film Beer For My Horses, which stars Toby Keith and also features Rodney Carrington, Claire Forlani, Tom Skerritt and Willie Nelson. The film will be released August 8, 2008 in movie theatres in selected cities. Filmed on location in New Mexico, it follows the exploits of small town deputies and best friends who defy the local sheriff to embark on an outrageous road trip to save one of their girlfriends from kidnappers.

As he approaches his amazing 6000th gig this summer, Ted -whose career spans five decades and multi-platinum sales exceeding 35 million albums - has announced a new concert trek that marks his 50th tour. The Rolling Thunder 2008 Tour kicks off June 7 and runs through September 27, including a massive July 4 blowout in his Detroit hometown at the DTE Energy Center. The itinerary includes an array of concerts in Europe July 5-16. Backed by his rock-solid bandmates Greg Smith (bass) and Mick Brown (drums), Ted will roar through his classics (including his immortal 'Stranglehold', named the #1 guitar lick by listeners of 103.5 THE FOX, Denver) and songs from Love Grenade, his 35th album that was released last fall (Eagle Rock Entertainment).

Meanwhile, it’s been another hit season for Ted Nugent Spirit Of The Wild (airing on the Outdoor Channel), big winners in not just one, but two categories at the 8th Annual Golden Moose Awards. For the fourth time, Ted and (his wife) Shemane Nugent were voted “Fan Favorite Hunting Series,” as well as “Fan Favorite Hosts” in a celebration held by Outdoor Channel during the 2008 Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show in Las Vegas.
