This song, which features Kid Rock, is the second single from Pop-Rock singer-songwriter Uncle Kracker's fourth album, Happy Hour.
This is one of two songs that Uncle Kracker wrote for Happy Hour with Brett James, the other one being "I Hate California." James, also co-wrote "When the Sun Goes Down," Uncle Kracker's 2004 hit with Kenny Chesney.
Uncle Kracker commented to Real Detroit Weekly: "Probably one of the most laid-back songs on the record. 'Good to be Me,' in a nutshell, is my DNA."
The version released as a single was a Country remake done for Uncle Kracker's 6 song EP, Happy Hour: The South River Road Sessions. The re-mix features and was produced by Kracker's buddy, Kid Rock.
