Nuthin' Changes

Album: Midnight Special (2012)


  • This white trash homage to Joe Walsh's "Life's Been Good" finds Kracker referencing a famous singer named Williams. Fans of Uncle Kracker will know that he started listening to country because of Hank Williams Jr. However in this instance he is talking about a different 'Williams'- the artist known as "The Gentle Giant," Don Williams. "He's one of my all-time favorites," Kracker told Billboard magazine. "All of his songs were a big influence. I could listen to his greatest hits for days. Songs like 'I Believe In You' are why I tend to gravitate towards being so laid back. There's a certain magic with his records. Not many people made records that felt and sounded as good, with the quality of writing."
