Darius Rucker Bio
As the frontman of Hootie & the Blowfish, Darius Rucker was one of the most popular frontmen in mainstream pop/rock during the mid-’90s. The band’s debut album, Cracked Rear View, was virtually inescapable in 1995, eventually selling more than 16 million copies and becoming one of the most successful albums of all time. Hootie & the Blowfish couldn’t re-create that magic on future albums, though, and the band took a break from the studio after releasing 1998’s Musical Chairs. Rucker used his free time to launch a solo career, which allowed the singer to explore his R&B and country influences.
Growing up in Charleston, South Carolina, Rucker was exposed to the sounds of Otis Redding, Al Green, and Gladys Knight at an early age. Those R&B icons helped influence Hootie & the Blowfish’s recordings, all of which featured Rucker’s soulful baritone at the forefront, but it wasn’t until his solo career that Rucker truly paid homage to the sounds of his youth. He initially planned to launch his solo career with The Return of Mongo Slade, which was scheduled for a summer 2001 release by Atlantic Records, but contractual changes prevented the album’s release. A few months later, Rucker jumped ship for Hidden Beach Recordings, which then acquired the master recordings of his debut from Atlantic.
His third solo album in a country vein, True Believers, followed in early 2013, and it generated a massive hit in the form of “Wagon Wheel,” a number one country single that crossed over to 15 on the pop charts on its way to triple-platinum certification. As he prepped a fourth country album, Rucker released the “Homegrown Honey” single in the fall of 2014, along with the seasonal album Home for the Holidays. Southern Style appeared in March 2015; it debuted at number one on Billboard’s country chart but didn’t generate a second big hit. “If I Told You,” the lead single from his next album, appeared in July of 2016, but it took Rucker another full year to finish the record. Preceded by the summer single “For the First Time,” the album When Was the Last Time appeared in October of 2017.
