Everybody's favorite family member, 'Uncle Kracker,' born Matthew Shafer, was in Brainerd, Minnesota over the weekend, and chatted exclusively with Mix 94.9.  He was in town performing at 'Lakes Jam' 2014, which set an all-time attendance record this past Saturday (June 28th).

Check out the exclusive interview above, and watch clips from his performance.
