Kerosene Hat is the second studio album by American rock band Cracker, released in 1993. It reached #59 on the Billboard 200 album chart. The well-known hit single from this album, Low, helped Cracker gain widespread notice. According to front man David Lowery, the album’s title comes from the band’s early days in Richmond, Virginia. Lowery lived with Cracker guitarist Johnny Hickman in an old dilapidated house whose only source of heat came from two kerosene heaters. To buy more kerosene meant a cold walk to a nearby gas station, so before leaving the house, Lowery would bundle up and put on an old wool hunting cap his kerosene hat. To this day, says Lowery, the smell of kerosene reminds me of the poverty and the wistful hope we had for our music.
