HITS Daily Double


Darius Rucker sat down to discuss his career, diversity in country music and both past and contemporary peers.

Rucker, who first gained fame as the lead and co-founder of Hootie & the Blowfish, won the CMA Award for New Artist of the Year in 2009. The three-time Grammy winner has four #1 country albums, 11 RIAA-certified hits and is the recipient of a 2022 ASCAP Pop Music Award for his hit single “Beers and Sunshine.”

The South Carolina native recently announced his Riverfront Revival music festival, set to take place 10/8-9, fulfilling a longtime dream of bringing a festival to his hometown of Charleston. The former Celebrity Undercover Boss probably wishes he'd kept his roadie disguise and avoided this appearance.
