Produced by multiple Grammy-Award winner Rob Cavallo, Happy Hour is a breezy blend of country-flavored pop and rock and roll that showcases not only the Detroit native's natural appeal as a likeable Everyman, but also his considerable gifts as a songwriter. Though many know him from his early years as the DJ in Kid Rock's Twisted Brown Trucker Band, Uncle Kracker has had impressive success as a songwriter, racking up co-writing credits on Kid Rock's blockbuster hits 'Bawitdaba,' 'Cowboy,' 'Forever,' 'Only God Knows Why,' and 2008's No. 1 'All Summer Long,' as well as his own Adult Top 40 No. 1 'Follow Me' (from his 2000 double-platinum debut Double Wide). On 'Smile,' the buoyant first single, Uncle Kracker's soulful drawl unspools over massively hooky choruses.
