Darius Rucker

Location:

Albemarle County

Event Type(s): Arts / Theatre / Music
Organization: The Paramount
Description:

Sponsored by: Embarq

Special Media Sponsors: WCYK, NBC29, C-ville Weekly

It’s a voice that needs no introduction.  Darius Rucker, the frontman for Hootie and the Blowfish, has stepped out on his own.  His soulful, rich baritone instantly resonates as a comforting companion. On Learn to Live, Rucker has created a work that is steeped in the country traditions of meaningful lyrics and resonant melodies, yet sounds completely modern.

Learn to Live has debuted at #1 on the Country Album Charts and his two videos supporting the CD have reached the top 5 on CMT.  The New York Times’ claims that the album is "one of the year’s most vibrant country albums," and Variety declares that "…country music has a new major star, and the genre may never be the same." As classic country albums sometimes do, Learn to Live takes the listener on an emotional journey with themes of love, loss, renewal and the redemptive spirit with death in its finality.   

The success of his first single, the bittersweet "Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It," screamed up the country music charts, landing at #1 for two straight weeks.

Rucker has always had a close kinship to country music and country artists while growing up in South Carolina.  However, Rucker’s career path veered first into pop as the lead singer/co-writer for the wildly successful Hootie and the Blowfish. The Grammy-winning group’s 1994 debut, Cracked Rear View, is one of the best-selling albums in history.  

Join us for a great night of performances from his hit current country album, and be in for a treat as he also sings some of those ever-recognizable Hootie and the Blowfish tunes.
