Uncle Kracker Announces New Single \”Sweet 16\”

Everyone’s favorite musical relative, the multi-genre and multi-platinum hitmaker, Uncle Kracker, has announced his first proper single since the notorious pandemic. The nostalgic “Sweet 16,” which weaves the infectious melodies and clever lyricism he’s always been known for, will be released on Friday, June 9 across all DSPs.

“‘Sweet 16’ is all American,” says Uncle Kracker. “It’s a song for anybody lucky enough to make it outta’ their teens, 20’s, and 30’s…‘Sweet 16’ is a recap. It’s hands down the most relevant song I’ve ever done.”

Listen to a snippet of the song, which Uncle Kracker shared on his social media channels here.
