<strong>Uncle Kracker Is Ready To Celebrate â€œHappy Hourâ€ 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, â€œHappy Hour.â€ The detroit-based singer/songwriterâ€™s 12-song collection arrives in stores and at all digital retailers on September 15th.
â€œHappy Hourâ€ is being preceded by the first single, â€œSmile.â€ Produced by multiple Grammy award-winner Rob Cavallo (Kid Rock, Green Day, Paramore), â€œHappy Hourâ€ sees Uncle Kracker continuing to craft his idiosyncratic blend of country-flavored pop and rock â€˜nâ€™ roll. Although initially known for his role as dj in kid rockâ€™s legendary twistedBrown Trucker Band, Uncle Kracker has also played a significant role as kid rockâ€™s songwriting collaborator, with co-writing credits on such blockbuster hits as â€œBawitdaba,â€ â€œCowboy,â€ â€œForever,â€ â€œOnly God Knows Why,â€ and 2008â€™s #1 classic, â€œAll Summer Long.â€
â€œhappy Hour" is undoubtedly sonically his best record, and I also think itâ€™s his best written record,â€ said Kid Rock about his best friendâ€™s new album and latest release on his top dog imprint. â€œand it should be, â€˜cuz heâ€™s had like 4 or 5 fucking years to write it.â€
In 2001, Uncle Kracker stepped into the spotlight, making a stunning solo debut with â€œDouble Wide.â€ fueled by the smash hit, â€œFollow Me,â€ the album exploded into the charts and went on to platinum success in Canada.
â€œNo Stranger to Shameâ€ followed in 2002, highlighted by the hit single,, â€œIn A Little While,â€ as well as Uncle Krackerâ€™s second single, a cover of Dobie Grayâ€™s classic â€œDrift Away.â€
2004â€™s â€œSeventy Two and Sunnyâ€ showcased Uncle Krackerâ€™s melodic songwriting and a unique stylistic synthesis of pop, rock, country, soul, blues, and even doo-wop. That same year, â€œwhen the sun goes down,â€ his collaboration with country superstar Kenny Chesney was also a chart-topping hit.
