Darius Rucker first attained multi-platinum status as the lead singer and rhythm guitarist of Hootie & the Blowfish.  Since re-introducing himself to the world as a country artist, Rucker has had a truly remarkable few years. In 2008, he released Learn to Live; the album's first single, "Don't Think I Don't Think About It," made him the first African American with a Number One country song since Charley Pride in 1983. It was followed by two more singles that topped the chart - "It Won't Be Like This For Long" and "Alright," earning him the New Artist award from the Country Music Association. His 2010 follow-up, Charleston, SC 1966, included two more Number Ones, "Come Back Song" and "This."

His third and most ambitious country studio album, True Believers, releases May 21.  Rucker opted to dig deeper, work with new collaborators, and create something more resonant both musically and emotionally with True BelieversThe album ranges from feel-good sing-along track, "Radio," to the sophisticated narrative of "Shine."  For his version of the popular Old Crow Medicine Show song "Wagon Wheel," initially based on a sketch by Bob Dylan, Rucker invited his tour partners and Capitol Records labelmates Lady Antebellum into the studio.  With the twelve songs on True Believers, Darius Rucker takes his accomplishments to impressive new heights. Staying true to the real-life stories that define country music, he has crafted an album that is consistent and complex, full of joy, pain, and passion. Now Rucker is looking forward to the next chapter - bringing these new songs to the stage.  Don’t miss Darius Rucker September 6 at Stage AE for The Pittsburgh Steelers Season Kickoff Concert!
