Happiness and All the Other Things is Cross Canadian Ragweed's tenth album. It was released on August 31, 2009. The album includes twelve new studio tracks and three live tracks, including a cover of Willie Nelson's "Angel Flying Too Close To The Ground", "Soul Agent" from the band's 2007 album Mission California, and a cover of Kevin Welch's "Train To Birmingham."[2]

Happiness and All the Other Things is released in commemoration of the band's 15th Anniversary. It is also officially dedicated to the late Randall "Poodie" Locke (Willie Nelson's long-time stage manager). The album cover has a page dedicating the album to him with the words:

"This album is dedicated to the most selfless, giving person that we've ever known. Thanks for believing in us and spreading our name. In loving memory... Poodie Locke, October 3, 1948 - May 6th, 2009... 'There are no bad days'"
