Darius Rucker is one of the most intriguing success stories in country music. He is one of the very few rock musicians to successfully cross over into country, and perhaps the only contemporary one to stay. He’s also one of a very few African American performers to succeed in the country genre. Rucker was very well-established in a career as the singer of Hootie & the Blowfish, and had also released one R&B solo album when he signed to Capitol Records Nashville in 2008. He released his country debut, ‘Learn to Live,’ later that year, and scored a No. 1 hit with its lead single, “Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It,” marking the first time a black solo performer held the top spot on Billboard’s Hot Country Songs chart since Charley Pride in 1983. He followed up with two more No. 1 hits, “It Won’t Be Like This for Long” and “Alright,” from the same project. Rucker has followed up with three more country solo albums, and built an impressive resume in the genre that rivals his previous rock career, with additional No. 1 hits including “Come Back Song,” “This” and “Wagon Wheel.” He was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry in 2012.

  • Full Name: Darius Carlos Rucker
