Uncle Kracker has announced plans to headline his first-ever country music club tour. Dates for his “It’s Good To Be Me Tour 2010″ this fall are listed below. Frankie Ballard and Ty Stone will also be on the bill.
In the meantime, Uncle Kracker is slated to criss-cross the country performing at an array of events, including a number of arena shows supporting country superstar Jason Aldean.
Uncle Kracker's latest single, “Good To Be Me” – featuring guest vocals from longtime friend/songwriting partner Kid Rock (who also produced the track) – is currently beginning its ascent at Country radio outlets nationwide. Check out the brand new video below.
Uncle Kracker is, of course, no stranger to the world of country music, having already topped Billboard's “Hot Country Songs” chart for five consecutive weeks with “When The Sun Goes Down,” his 2004 collaboration with country superstar Kenny Chesney. In 2008, Uncle Kracker returned to the Country charts having co-written Kid Rock's smash “All Summer Long” which peaked at #3.
“I've always had a genuine passion for country. I think that audiences appreciate that, and that's why they're giving me a chance,” Uncle Kracker explains. “Country music was one of the types of music I grew up with, so elements of it naturally come out in my songwriting. Listening to a lot of my songs – all the way back to 'Follow Me' – I feel like I've been making country music for years.”
