Darius Rucker Proud of "Best Record" He's Ever Made
Darius Rucker first made a name for himself as the frontman of Hootie and the Blowfish but he’s since gone on to become a successful country artist and he’s particularly happy with his most recent efforts.
The singer was recently asked to introduce the new Whitetail Club as a tourist destination in McCall, Idaho. "They wanted to have a big show up there, and they asked me to it," he said. "I love playing up in Idaho, so I was glad they asked me. We had some fun, and hopefully, we helped to spread the word about everything they are doing up there."
He also wants us to know about his own personal excitement, including his new single “True Believers” which will be the first release from his third solo album, Wagon Wheel. He explains: "We just finished the vocal for the single, and I'm excited. I think this is the best record I've ever made, and I can't stop listening to it. On 'Charleston, SC 1966' we just wanted to pick up where we left off, but with the new album, Frank Rogers (his producer) and I wanted it to sound a little different."
The single also features Lady Antebellum, with whom he’s been touring. "I heard it and thought it was a great record. I was at my daughter's high school talent show and the faculty did 'Wagon Wheel.' So, I texted Frank, and told him I wanted to cut it. I was on tour with Lady Antebellum at the time, and they came in and sang on it. They took it to a whole new level, because it went from being the last song on the record to a possible single."
Does he plan to continue working in this genre? "I don't plan to slow down anytime soon," he says. "I wanted to make country records, and my manager got me a deal. But, I didn't know if I was going to get to make another one. Now, they are letting me do a third, and probably a fourth, so I don't want to stop or slow down."
I’m sure his fans are happy about that!
