– Uncle Kracker will launch the Hometown Tour with the gigs starting on March 1 in Illinois and continuing through April.
Support throughout the tour will come from Southern Ground recording artist Sonia Leigh and Uncle Kracker's Top Dog/Atlantic/Warner Nashville labelmate Ty Stone. Tickets for select shows go on sale to the public starting Friday, Jan. 13. Presale tickets for members of Uncle Kracker's online fan communities begin today.
Uncle Kracker's "Hometown Tour" heralds the recent release of his new single, My Hometown.. Produced by Keith Stegall (Zac Brown Band, Alan Jackson and George Jones), the song is the first single from his as-yet-untitled forthcoming album. Uncle Kracker is putting the final touches on the new release with more details to come shortly.
This is the Detroit-based singer/songwriter's first new music since 2010's "Happy Hour - The South River Road Sessions." That six song collection was recorded in Nashville by Stegall and Rob Cavallo (Kid Rock), featuring reinterpretations of tracks originally found on 2009's "Happy Hour."
