Darius Rucker at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino - Saturday, October 18
WITH SPECIAL GUEST COREY SMITH
SATURDAY, OCTOBER 18 AT 8PM
Tickets on-sale Friday at 10am!
Las Vegas, NV (June 2, 2014) – Country artist Darius Rucker will be bringing his high-energy performance to The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Saturday, October 18. Rucker will be joined by special guest Corey Smith. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10am.
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 new album True Believers - ranging from his current single, the feel-good, sing-along, "Radio" to the sophisticated narrative of "Shine."
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 No. 1 country song since Charley Pride in 1983. It was followed by two more singles that topped the charts - "It Won't Be Like This For Long" and "Alright" - and earned him the New Artist of the Year award at the 2009 CMA Awards. His 2010 follow-up, Charleston, SC 1966, included two more Number Ones, "Come Back Song" and "This."
Rucker released True Believers on May 21. The album is the third consecutive album to top the Billboard Country albums chart and features the Platinum-certified, ACM and CMA nominated, GRAMMY award-winning two week No. 1 single “Wagon Wheel.”
In October 2012, Rucker achieved a childhood dream when he was inducted into the Grand Ole Opry. Asked if he can believe the unprecedented success of his second career, Rucker just laughs. "From where I was five years ago to the Grand Ole Opry, why would I believe that?," he says. "I didn't even know if country radio was going to play my song, but you can’t think about things like that.”
