Uncle Kracker Mini-Album Premiere

Uncle Kracker

Uncle Kracker's mini-album, "Happy Hour - The South River Road Sessions," isn't out until next week, but you can hear it all right now exclusively right here. The six-pack of songs, which expands upon last year's album "Happy Hour," features a version of "Good To Be Me," with Kid Rock on vocals, and a countrified retake of "Smile."

Kid Rock, who also produced "Good To Be Me," isn't the only guest on the new "Happy Hour" six pack. "Me Again" features up-and-coming country singer Jesse Lee.

Last year, upon the release of his full "Happy Hour" album -- his first in five years, Uncle Kracker (real name: Matt Shafer) told Billboard.com that "Smile was "probably the most positive song I've ever written," and noted that the record had a "a little country (and) soul fused through it."

"Happy Hour - The South River Road Sessions" is officially released on June 22.
