Darius Rucker

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.

After making a cameo in the Farrelly brothers' film Shallow Hal, Rucker introduced his mellow, R&B-influenced music with 2002's Back to Then (essentially The Return of Mongo Slade with a different title), which featured collaborations with Jill Scott and Snoop Dogg. Rucker then returned his focus to Hootie & the Blowfish, releasing two albums with the group during the early 2000s before revisiting his solo career. This time, he opted for a country approach, and the twangy Learn to Live found an appropriate home among country music fans, who sent both the album and its flagship single, "Don't Think I Don't Think About It," to the top of the Billboard country charts. "It Won't Be Like This for Long" and "Alright" also peaked at number one, pushing the album to platinum status within a year of its release. Rucker smartly stayed in the country mold for his follow-up album, Charleston, SC 1966, which appeared in fall 2010; it also spawned two number one singles in "Come Back Song" and "This." 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. ~ Andrew Leahey & MacKenzie Wilson

Don't read this. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. Don't stop this is freaky! But if you read this and ignore it you will get bad luck. Put this on 15 songs in 143 minutes. When you are done press the space bar and your crushes name will appear in big letters on the screen. This is so creepy because it actually works

He was never bootie... just Hootie and the blowfish. He was great back then. Hootie and the blowfish put him on too, so don't forget that. I'm from Columbia sc, listened to em my whole life as Hootie first. And it was great to see him go solo as well. He is very talented. He is spectacular.

Not all California girls are that way :( we all know just how special all of those Georgia chicks all ready k? I would hope that some girls in Cali, would stop acting badly around a lot of the men in California cause then we get thrown into the ditch & given a bad reputation and it just makes me think: Oh, okay well I know why country singers like a lot of the Georgia girls better than Cali girls.
