Uncle Kracker Heading Back To The Studio Before Kenny Chesney Tour

Billboard.com recently caught up with the Uncle Kracker to chat about heading back into the studio to record a follow up to his 2009 release Happy Hour.

 “I’m kind of excited — actually, the most excited I’ve been in a long time,” Kracker tells Billboard.com. He says he’s written “about 20 songs and describes them as “a little more Americana. I don’t want to say rootsy, but I think it’s more ‘me’ than the last record was. The overall goal this time was to go in and have fun.”

As for touring with the “King of Summer,” Kracker says he’s looking forward to it. “We’re both pretty laid-back cats, and he’s just such a great dude, so we do well together,” says Kracker. “He’s just a great guy and a lot of fun to be around, and I’m a pretty fun person. The last thing you want is to be out on the road with some miserable group, just putzing around. I’ve been on plenty of tours where there’s no interaction between bands at all. But when you’re out with Chesney, all day every day, there’s something fun happening.”
