      Uncle Kracker

      No matter what he does or where he goes, Uncle Kracker adheres to a simple, yet rather timeless philosophy. I really subscribe to this mindset of just having fun, he affirms. Thats what its always about. Its the train that Im forever on. The way I feel is if Im enjoying it, its really worth doing.Now hes having more fun than ever. Last year Uncle Kracker joined Sugar Ray, Better Than Ezra and Eve 6for the Under The Sun Tour 2015, hitting sheds across the country throughout the summer. Uncle Kracker will be back on the road in 2016. His live show continues to get bigger and better with every tour. "It's very interactive," he says. "It's meant to be a party, and I want everybody involved. Each time we go on stage, I want people to leave smiling." That outlook has served him well over the years. After vaulting to stardom as acharismaticpresence and chief collaborator in Kid Rocks Twisted Brown Trucker Band, theMichigansinger, songwriter, and performer,also known as Matthew Shafer,kicked off a stunningsolo career of his own. His 2000 major label debut, Double Wide, fittingly went double-platinum and yielded #1 smash Follow Me. Its 2002 follow-up No Stranger To Shame reached gold status and spawned cross-format hits such as In A Little While and the powerful cover of Dobie Grays Drift Away, which set a Billboard record for most weeks at #1 on any chart, topping their #1 run on the Adult Contemporary radio charts for a staggering28 weeks. Country superstar Kenny Chesney tapped him for When The Sun Goes Down,which impressively spentfive weeks at #1 on Billboards Hot Country Songs Chart. Throughout, he played sold out shows across the country and appeared everywhere from the American Country Music Awards toLate Night WithConanO'Brien. Then, 2012 saw him fullyembrace his country side with his critically acclaimed fifth outing, Midnight Special.Uncle Kracker is still having a blast, and fans worldwide undoubtedly will toowhen they see him on the road. When Im up onstage, I dont feel removed from the people coming to hear the music, he leaves off. You can feel it, when they identify with you. Sometimes when Im up there, I wanna tellem Im not any different than you are.
