Uncle Kracker, the Michigan singer, songwriter, and performer also known as Matthew Shafer, adheres to a simple, yet rather timeless philosophy whenever he performs: “I really subscribe to this mindset of just having fun,” he affirms. “That’s what it’s always about. It’s the train that I’m forever on. The way I feel is if I’m enjoying it, it’s really worth doing.”
