    Uncle Kracker

    Alternative Rock

    It happens in an instant. The moment you hear an Uncle Kracker tune, your day brightens up. Since the
    turn-of-the-century, the Michigan-born singer, songwriter, and producer has delivered unshakable and
    undeniable anthems with impressive consistency. It’s nearly impossible not to nod your head, tap your foot, or
    sing along as soon as you hear the likes of “Smile” or “Follow Me.” Along the way, he has smashed records,
    tallied over 1 billion streams, and captivated sold out crowds everywhere. He’s not stopping in 2023 with his
    recently released single “Sweet 16,” and touring throughout the summer with a mix of headlining dates and
    shows with ZZ Top and Lynyrd Skynyrd on the “Sharp Dressed Simple Man” tour.
    Born Matthew Shafer, he discovered music via his mother growing up in Michigan. Among his first memories,
    he vividly recalled mom “sitting in the family van, smoking her Kool Filter Kings, and listening to ‘Raindrops
    Keep Fallin’ on My Head’ by B.J. Thomas.” The whole family loved music, and dad was “all Motown, all the
    time.” Beyond classics by everyone from Barry Manilow to James Taylor, Uncle Kracker fell in love with
    hip-hop at 12-years-old. Under the influence of “Jail House Rap” by The Fat Boys, he picked up his first drum
    machine and learned how to program. Soon after, he built a rudimentary setup with an 8-track to record songs of
    his own. Earning a reputation in the local scene, “Kracker” stuck as a nickname, and he added “Uncle” after
    being inspired by a picture of Uncle Dave Macon in the smoking lounge of the Nashville airport.
    The world initially met Uncle Kracker during his stint in Kid Rock’s Twisted Brown Trucker Band, lending his
    songwriting and musical acumen to seven cuts off the RIAA diamond-certified Devil Without A Cause.
    However, fans fell in love with him on his solo debut Double Wide in 2000. It not only crashed the Top 10 of
    the Billboard 200 at #7, but it also picked up a double-platinum certification.
    Most importantly, it represented the fulfillment of his biggest dream to date.
    “Double Wide meant the most to me, because I had always tried to secure a record deal of my own on a national
    level,” he states. “All I wanted was to sign my first deal, record my first album, and put that album out.
    Everything was secondary to me. I never could’ve fathomed what transpired beyond that. It definitely was a
    dream.”
    The dream continued with the gold-certified follow-up No Stranger To Shame [2002]. Along the way, he
    impressively notched #1 entries in three different genre lanes, topping Pop, Adult Contemporary, and Country
    charts. The platinum “Follow Me” clinched #1 in four countries, while the double-platinum “When The Sun
    Goes Down” [with Kenny Chesney] vaulted to #1 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks Chart. He
    made history with his cover of Dobie Gray’s “Drift Away.” It logged 28 consecutive weeks at #1 Adult
    Contemporary Radio, earning “the most weeks atop any Billboard chart.” Meanwhile, “Smile” shined across
    culture. It reached triple-platinum status and landed dozens of syncs, including a spot for The Office and a
    tribute montage to Regis Philbin on his final episode of Live With Regis & Kelly. Over the years, he
    collaborated with Sheryl Crow, Mark McGrath of Sugar Ray, Beth Hart, Bret Michaels, and Mr. Hahn of Linkin
    Park, among many others. Following 2012’s country album Midnight Special, he served up singles such as
    “Endlessly,” “Floatin’,” and “No Time To Be Sober.”
    Ultimately, Uncle Kracker never stops moving though with more music and touring on the horizon.
