Darius Rucker defied all odds in 2008 when he made the successful and difficult transition from rock-pop star to country star. Many before him have tried such a move, but few have ever succeeded, and virtually none succeeded to the extent that Rucker did, and all with just one album. From Hootie and the Blowfish frontman to bona-fide country music sensation, Rucker achieved the impossible, and his future in country music appears to be very bright.
The East Tennessee native has an impressive track record with hitting on sentiments that strike a chord with the country listener: he's had six number one hits from his first three albums, from "Watching You" and "These Are My People" to his most recent smashes, "Take A Back Road," and "Farmer's Daughter," (which quickly skyrocketed to platinum,) and he's sold over four million singles in the past five years alone.
