Before Uncle Kracker flew up the charts to #1 with “When the Sun Goes Down,” a duet with good friend Kenny Chesney, country music might’ve seemed an odd place to find the Detroit-based good-time Kid Rock alumni. But after a few summer tours with Chesney, the Top 5 “Smile,” and Midnight Special, a pure country album produced by Keith Stegall, nobody doubts this feel-good rocker is exactly where he should be. In addition to the multi-format smash hit “All Summer Long” which he co-wrote with Kid Rock, he wrote and recorded the pop No. 1 hit “Follow Me” and spent 28 weeks at #1 on the Adult Contemporary charts with his version of Dobie Gray’s “Drift Away.” Uncle Kracker’s deep melodies and sense of what the heartland means has made him a perfect fit in today’s post-rural realm of country music.
