Uncle Kracker’s New Video “Blue Skies” Will Put a Smile on Your Face

I just received Uncle Kracker's video for his newest song "Blue Skies", in it Kracker has to rely on family to get this video made because his crew got drunk. After a quick phone call, Uncle Kracker is set to make his music video with help from his cousin. As I watched it, I couldn't help but smile all the way through it (I think you'll smile too). At the risk of sounding like an old softy, I'll go ahead and say it, 'This video is too cute!' Check it out and then tell me if you like it as much as I do.

Some of these local businesses are actually in violation of flag laws and lack flag etiquette, and probably don't know it.
