Darius Rucker will be featured in an intimate performance for 2,000 fans at FireKeepers Casino Hotel Event Center in Battle Creek on Saturday, Nov. 16, 2013.
Since re-introducing himself to the world as a country artist, Rucker has had a truly remarkable few years. In 2008, he released Learn to Live; the album’s first single, “Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It,” made him the first African American with a Number One country song since Charley Pride in 1983. It was followed by two more singles that topped the chart – “It Won’t Be Like This For Long” and “Alright” – and earned him the New Artist award from the Country Music Association. His 2010 follow-up, Charleston, SC 1966, included two more Number Ones, “Come Back Song” and “This.” Recently, Rucker was nominated for the CMA’s Musical Event of the Year award for his performance of “Stuck on You” with Lionel Richie, and was recently inducted into the Grand Ole Opry.
Rucker, who first attained multi-platinum status as the lead singer and rhythm guitarist of Hootie & the Blowfish, wrote ten of the twelve tracks on his most recent album True Believers. With the twelve songs on True Believers, Darius Rucker takes his accomplishments to impressive new heights. Staying true to the real-life stories that define country music, he has crafted an album that is consistent and complex, full of joy, pain, and passion. Now Rucker is looking forward to the next chapter – bringing these new songs to the stage.
