Darius Ruckers Makes Us All Feel Old

Hootie-and-the-Blowfish-Cracked-Rear-View

Geez, this makes me feel old too!!!!

Darius Rucker took to Facebook to remind us all how old we really are saying, “All of the sudden, I feel old.”

It’s because he’s realized it’s been 20 years since the release of the Hootie and the Blowfish album “Cracked Rear View.” The album came out on July 5, 1994.  Darius tells Billboard magazine they had hoped to sell enough records to make enough money to record another one. He says, “We did a little more than that.” The album sold 16 million copies and is the 16th best-selling album of all time.

Fifth Annual “Darius & Friends” Benefit Concert & Celebrity Golf Tournament Raised Over $96,000 for St. Jude’s

Darius & Friends

Darius Rucker returned to the stage of the Wildhorse Saloon in downtown Nashville on Monday, June 2 for his fifth annual “Darius And Friends” concert to benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The concert, auction and golf tournament raised a combined total of $122,490 to help St. Jude provide the best care possible to children with cancer at no cost to their families.

“Growing up, my mother instilled in me the importance of giving back. Whether it was mowing a neighbor’s yard or helping during the loss of a loved one, it’s important on so many levels,” says Rucker. “Just like St. Jude, I’ve been given so much from the music community over the years, so this is one of the ways I know how to say ‘thanks.’ Not only is this one of my favorite shows all year, but it’s a great platform to remind so many of the incredible work done by St. Jude.”

The benefit concert line-up included emcee Storme Warren and performances from Eli Young Band, Clint Black, Charles Kelley (of Lady Antebellum), David Nail, Cassadee Pope, Kenny Rogers, Corey Smith and Thompson Square, all backed by Rucker’s band, the Carolina Grey Boys. Rucker joined his friends for classics such as “Lucille” with Rogers, “Jackson” with Pope, and “Let Her Cry” with Smith, in addition to performing his own hits, including “Radio,” “Alright,” and “Come Back Song”. During the evening’s finale, Rucker invited all of his friends on stage to join him in performing his GRAMMY award winning, two-week No. 1 hit single, “Wagon Wheel.”

See a gallery from the show on Rolling Stone Country and read about Rucker’s transformation in this Rolling Stone issue on stands June 6.

The June 3rd celebrity golf tournament portion of this year’s “Darius And Friends,” included Colt Ford, JT Hodges, Tommy John, Charles Kelley (Lady Antebellum), Dustin Lynch, Derek Mason, David Nail, Jon Pardi, Eric Paslay, Keifer Thompson (Thompson Square), tournament winners Henry Cho and Scott Hamilton and more.

Rucker is currently out on the road for his True Believers Tour. Find upcoming tour dates, news and more at www.DariusRucker.com
