Uncle Kracker Is Ready To Celebrate âHappy Hourâ Rob Cavallo-Produced Collection Due September 15, 2009


Top Dog/Atlantic recording artist Uncle Kracker has announced the forthcoming release of his eagerly anticipated new album, âHappy Hour.â The detroit-based singer/songwriterâs 12-song collection arrives in stores and at all digital retailers on September 15th.

âHappy Hourâ is being preceded by the first single, âSmile.â Produced by multiple Grammy award-winner Rob Cavallo (Kid Rock, Green Day, Paramore), âHappy Hourâ sees Uncle Kracker continuing to craft his idiosyncratic blend of country-flavored pop and rock ânâ roll. Although initially known for his role as dj in kid rockâs legendary twistedBrown Trucker Band, Uncle Kracker has also played a significant role as kid rockâs songwriting collaborator, with co-writing credits on such blockbuster hits as âBawitdaba,â âCowboy,â âForever,â âOnly God Knows Why,â and 2008âs #1 classic, âAll Summer Long.â

âhappy Hour" is undoubtedly sonically his best record, and I also think itâs his best written record,â said Kid Rock about his best friendâs new album and latest release on his top dog imprint. âand it should be, âcuz heâs 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 âDouble Wide.â fueled by the smash hit, âFollow Me,â the album exploded into the charts and went on to platinum success in Canada.

âNo Stranger to Shameâ followed in 2002, highlighted by the hit single,, âIn A Little While,â as well as Uncle Krackerâs second single, a cover of Dobie Grayâs classic âDrift Away.â

2004âs âSeventy Two and Sunnyâ showcased Uncle Krackerâs melodic songwriting and a unique stylistic synthesis of pop, rock, country, soul, blues, and even doo-wop. That same year, âwhen the sun goes down,â his collaboration with country superstar Kenny Chesney was also a chart-topping hit.
