Gather 'round and take in the gorgeous summer scenery, and the stomping sounds of Darius Rucker after the release of his new album, "True Believers." The proceeds from this show will go towards orthopedic research within the Steadman Clinic, to help them continue in making steps towards health and medical science that is so pivotal to the Vail Valley, and all athletes and adrenaline junkies.
About Darius, and his new album:
Rucker, who first attained multi-platinum status as the lead singer and rhythm guitarist of Hootie & the Blowfish, wrote ten of the twelve tracks on True Believers - ranging from his current single, the feel-good, sing-along, "Radio" to the sophisticated narrative of "Shine." He expresses special pride in the raw and realistic sentiments of songs like "Miss You" and "I Will Love You Still," a duet with young powerhouse vocalist Mallary Hope.
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" - and earned 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."
In October 2012, Rucker achieved a childhood dream when he was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry. Asked if he can believe the unprecedented success of his second career, Rucker just laughs. "From where I was five years ago to the Grand Ole Opry, why would I believe that?," he says. "I didn't even know if country radio was going to play my song, but you can’t think about things like that.”
