As one of the few genuine & successful pop-country crossover acts we’ve seen in the last few years, Darius Rucker has established himself as a fan and critic favorite since releasing his first solo record out of Nashville in 2008. While many people will always mistakenly refer to him as “Hootie” from the six albums he released in the late 80s and early 90s as frontman for Hootie & the Blowfish, Rucker has used his roots in South Carolina, unique voice and accomplished song writing to establish himself as a resurgent star on the Country charts. Recently announced Darius Rucker tour dates will be in support of his second solo country record Charleston, SC 1966.

Darius Rucker Tour Dates 2012

Rucker continues to work very hard to establish his unique place in country music; he’s the only artist to win the CMA’s New Artist Award since its introduction 30 years ago, and he’s approached his second life as a musician with a determined approach to win over his peers and fans with good music rather than relying on past pop accolades and any sense of entitlement. His attitude and song writing have certainly started him on the right track – the first two singles from his second album reached #1 on the Country charts, giving him four total #1 hits since making the change. One advantage he has on his side, though, that other newer artists may envy is extensive touring experience. While his current shows are different from his pop rock band days, he’s able to approach the growing crowds with veteran savvy and an entertaining result.

Darius Rucker Live

Long time fans of Rucker’s work can also look for many of his older songs to be played at shows. As a songwriter, many of his works have deep emotional meanings that stand the test of time and are easier for him to remix into new arrangements than some more conventional covers bands often share with live audiences.
