Darius’ New Album Is Out Tuesday

Darius Rucker exploded onto the country scene a couple of years ago with three straight No. 1 hits, 1.5 million in album sales and a Country Music Association trophy.

Not bad for a guy who crossed over from pop, a move that has failed miserably for countless others, including Jessica Simpson and Bret Michaels.

On Tuesday (Oct. 12), the former Hootie & the Blowfish frontman comes with his sophomore country album, Charleston, SC 1966.

The title is a nod to a solo album from Foster & Lloyd’s Radney Foster, an album called Del Rio, TX 1959, which greatly shaped Darius’ appreciation for music.

Among the cuts on Darius’ new album is “I Don’t Care,” a funny drinking song he wrote and recorded with Brad Paisley.

Darius will celebrate his album release by headlining a free outdoor show put on by his label, Capitol Records, on Oct. 13. The Capitol Street Party 3 happens near Music Row, on Demonbreun Street here in Nashville.
