About

Darius Rucker (born May 13, 1966) is an American musician. He first gained fame as the lead singer and rhythm guitarist of the rock band Hootie & the Blowfish, which he founded in 1986 at the University of South Carolina along with Mark Bryan, Jim "Soni" Sonefeld and Dean Felber. The band has released five studio albums with him as a member, and charted six top 40 hits on the Billboard Hot 100. Rucker co-wrote the majority of the band's songs with the other three members.

True Believers is the fourth studio album by American country music artist Darius Rucker, and his third in the country genre. It will be released soon via Capitol Records Nashville. Rucker wrote ten of the album's twelve tracks.

Rucker's first two country albums, Learn To Live and Charleston, SC 1966 both topped the Billboard Country album chart and produced five No. 1 singles including Come Back Song, This, Alright, It Won t Be Like This For Long and Don t Think I Don t Think About It.

For this album, we really paid attention to what our friends and fans were telling us on the road, shares Rucker. The result is an album that I m so proud of because my fans really have been the true believers since I released my first single to country radio. I can t wait for everyone to hear it!

Editorial Review: Capitol Records Nashville recording artist Darius Rucker will release his third country studio album, True Believers, on May 21. Darius wrote ten of the twelve tracks on True Believers, produced by Frank Rogers, and the album features the Top 20-and-climbing critically-acclaimed single Wagon Wheel written by Ketch Secor of Old Crow Medicine Show, based on a sketch by Bob Dylan.

I m very proud of this record, Rucker reveals. The songs, the co-writes, the vibe it s all really different from what we ve recorded and released on the past two albums, and I hope that difference resonates with the fans.

Rogers, who also produced Learn To Live and Charleston, SC 1966, shares, When we were recording True Believers, we had Darius record a lot of the vocals for this album in his hometown of Charleston. I think as a result of that relaxed setting he was more experimental vocally, and honestly, he sang better than ever before.

Rucker s first two country albums, Learn To Live and Charleston, SC 1966 both topped the Billboard Country album chart and produced five No. 1 singles including Come Back Song, This, Alright, It Won t Be Like This For Long and Don t Think I Don t Think About It.

In 2009 Rucker was named New Artist of the Year at the CMA Awards. Most recently, he achieved a personal goal and childhood dream when he was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry on October 16, 2012. Rucker will kick off his True Believers Tour on May 9 in Estero, Florida, visiting more than 20 cities across the U.S. before wrapping up in Clarkston, Michigan on June 30.
