ATHENS, GA. (AP) - Cracker singer David Lowery will teach a music business class at the University of Georgia this spring.

Lowery, who co-founded the bands Cracker and Camper Van Beethoven, will teach for UGA’s music business certificate program. He was a guest lecturer at UGA in 2009 for the music business program.

Lowery started Camper Van Beethoven in 1983 but grew to prominence with Cracker, which produced such hits as “Low” and “Get Off This.” He also founded Sound of Music Studios in Richmond, Va.

Camper Van Beethoven’s “Take the Skinheads Bowling,” was the title track for filmmaker Michael Moore’s 2002 Academy Award-winning documentary “Bowling for Columbine.”
