CMT to Air Inside Fame with Darius Rucker!

Darius Rucker

Twenty years have passed since country singer/songwriter Darius Rucker took the pop music scene by storm as a member of the group Hootie & the Blowfish. Now, a multi-platinum CMA Award winning country star, Rucker shares the moments behind his success in both pop and country when a new episode of CMT’s bio-series INSIDE FAME: DARIUS RUCKER premieres Saturday, February 7th at 12:00 noon – 1:00 p.m. ET/PT. Through candid new interviews and never-before-seen footage, INSIDE FAME takes looks at the rise and rebirth of Rucker including the heart-breaking death of his mom, hitting pause on Hootie & the Blowfish and ultimately, his path to country stardom.

When Hootie & the Blowfish concluded their hugely successful run with a hiatus in 2008, Rucker jumped at the opportunity to pursue his country music dreams. Mike Dungan, who helmed Capitol Nashville at the time, couldn’t deny there was something special in Rucker, even if it didn’t seem particularly easy to reinvent the pop star as a country singer. “The tone, the quality and the uniqueness of his voice – and his phrasing – was amazingly like a country singer,” Dungan commented. The transition from pop to country worked. The Charleston, S.C., native proved he was made for country when his first release Learn To Live sold more than a million copies in 2009. Rucker has since produced six No. 1 country singles, and is working on his fourth studio country album, Southern Style, to be released on March 31, 2015.

“I always believed since I was a kid that I was destined to do something totally special. I thought maybe Cracked Rear View was it,” Rucker commented on his career. “But then, there were times I would think… there’s something else out there for me. ‘Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It’ was the beginning of what I was supposed to do that was amazingly special.”
