Though many know him from his early years as the DJ in Kid Rock's Twisted Brown Trucker Band, Uncle Kracker has had impressive success as a songwriter, racking up co-writing credits on Kid Rock's blockbuster hits "Bawitdaba," "Cowboy," "Forever," "Only God Knows Why," and 2008's No. 1 "All Summer Long," as well as his own Adult Top 40 No. 1 "Follow Me."
Led by husband and wife songwriting team, Meredith DiMenna and Keith Saunders, Saint Bernadette mixes a fiery cocktail of femme fatale vocals and below-the-belt rock 'n roll.
