It’s always interesting – to me at least – when artists cross between genres. Uncle Kracker has been dipping into the country world now for quite a few years. He’s had some great country songs come through and he’s looking to have another hit with this latest single.
This song is fun and funky. It’s just the kind of tune you’re looking for after a long week at work. By the time Saturday comes around there is no reason to feel sad anymore. Check this one out.
Nobody’s Sad On Saturday Night – Uncle Kracker
I really like this song. It’s got a great melody. I remember first hearing this on the radio earlier this week and I wasn’t sure who the artist was. I thought maybe it was Bucky Covington, but then after a couple more listens it became obvious that it was Uncle Kracker.
The thing with Uncle Kracker is that he’s pretty laid back. It comes through in all his songs. They have a laid back feeling to them. What I love about this track is that is recognizes that some people struggle to get through the week, but come the weekend it’s the time for everyone to relax, kick back and just enjoy a few hours. It’s just the way it should be on Saturday night.
Uncle Kracker is really an interesting artist. He had a pretty good run on the pop charts and then after a break from the charts he came out strong on the country charts. It was really a surprise, but now he’s had three charting songs and I think he’s working on another one here.
It just goes to show you that if you make good music the country fans will let you in.
And right now Uncle Kracker is making good music.
