<strong>Uncle Kracker Is Ready To Celebrate “Happy Hour” Rob Cavallo-Produced Collection Due September 15, 2009 </strong> Top Dog/Atlantic recording artist Uncle Kracker has announced the forthcoming release of his eagerly anticipated new album, “Happy Hour.” The detroit-based singer/songwriter’s 12-song collection arrives in stores and at all digital retailers on September 15th. “Happy Hour” is being preceded by the first single, “Smile.” Produced by multiple Grammy award-winner Rob Cavallo (Kid Rock, Green Day, Paramore), “Happy Hour” sees Uncle Kracker continuing to craft his idiosyncratic blend of country-flavored pop and rock ‘n’ roll. Although initially known for his role as dj in kid rock’s legendary twistedBrown Trucker Band, Uncle Kracker has also played a significant role as kid rock’s songwriting collaborator, with co-writing credits on such blockbuster hits as “Bawitdaba,” “Cowboy,” “Forever,” “Only God Knows Why,” and 2008’s #1 classic, “All Summer Long.” “happy Hour" is undoubtedly sonically his best record, and I also think it’s his best written record,” said Kid Rock about his best friend’s new album and latest release on his top dog imprint. “and it should be, ‘cuz he’s had like 4 or 5 fucking years to write it.” In 2001, Uncle Kracker stepped into the spotlight, making a stunning solo debut with “Double Wide.” fueled by the smash hit, “Follow Me,” the album exploded into the charts and went on to platinum success in Canada. “No Stranger to Shame” followed in 2002, highlighted by the hit single,, “In A Little While,” as well as Uncle Kracker’s second single, a cover of Dobie Gray’s classic “Drift Away.” 2004’s “Seventy Two and Sunny” showcased Uncle Kracker’s melodic songwriting and a unique stylistic synthesis of pop, rock, country, soul, blues, and even doo-wop. That same year, “when the sun goes down,” his collaboration with country superstar Kenny Chesney was also a chart-topping hit.
