Uncle Kracker Tickets for Sale

Take Kid Rock's rhyming style, tone down the guitars, replace his wife-beater with a cowboy shirt, and you've got Uncle Kracker. Rhymes focus more on the "wandering everyman" vibe, with mildly distorted vocals, slide guitar breakdowns and sung choruses. Uncle Kracker's 2000 debut, Double Wide, was a radio hit, and his subsequent records have found the rapper exploring all kinds of music, from soul to country rock.

Uncle Kracker (born Matthew Shafer 9 November 1974 in Mount Clemens, Michigan) is an American rock and roll musician. He started out his career at a young age as a fledgling rapper. He met Kid Rock in 1987, and Rock asked Kracker to become his DJ. Cracker did not know how to work the turntables, but he soon learned how to, and he became a long-term friend and colleague of Rock.
