It’s hard to believe that it’s been a dozen years since Uncle Kracker had a huge hit with Follow Me.
To stick around on the charts for that long you need to have some talent and it’s obvious that Kracker has a knack for creating good music.
In recent years, Kracker has been focusing on country music although he’s had interest in the genre since his smash duet with Kenny Chesney in 2004.
The new song is another feel good summer song. It’s a good one.
Blue Skies – Uncle Kracker
I really like this kind of song right now. There are sad songs. There are serious songs. There are fun songs.
This is just kind of a laid back song. You can kick back on the lawn chair and just enjoy life.
The track has a fun melody that puts you in a good state of mind. It makes you feel like laying back and feeling the warm sun hit your face. You’ve got some sunglasses on and your favorite person is sitting next to you.
Kracker comes off as this guy with a rough exterior, but his songs have always been pretty cheery for the most part. You have to believe he has a true passion for enjoying life.
Now that he’s well into his second decade on the charts it’s good to have him focusing on country music. I think he fits in well and brings something new to the table.
