Uncle Kracker Working On New Album In Nashville

Uncle Kracker is working on a new album in Nashville. The singer, who first made a name for himself as a rapper with Kid Rock, is developing the follow up to his 2009 CD "Happy Hour." That album includes Kracker's top ten country hit "Smile" and his ACM-nominated collaboration with Rock, "Good to be Me." Kracker tells he's "excited" about his new project, which he anticipates will be "a little more Americana," and, quote, "more 'me' than the last record was." He's also teaming up with with Alan Jackson's longtime producer Keith Stegall for the sessions. Kracker says he plans to be finished recording his new album within the next few weeks. He explains that he wants to be done with the project before he hits the road with Kenny Chesney on Chesney's "Goin' Coastal" tour. The trek will begin in West Palm Beach, Florida on March 17th.
