Darius Rucker Talks Success, Race on “CBS This Morning”

Darius Rucker sat down with CBS correspondent Jan Crawford for a recent segment on CBS This Morning. The interview touches on Darius' transition from the ’90s hitmaking band Hootie & the Blowfish to his solo country career, and why he wouldn’t have signed himself to a deal at that time.

“Why would I take a chance with this new guy in country music?” he says. “The pop guy going country music, it never works.”

He also touched on race, and how sometimes people are still not welcoming of a black country singer. Additionally, he discusses his Grand Ole Opry invitation and how moved he was to become a part of the Opry family.
