COOPERSTOWN, NY - Darius Rucker, country superstar and former frontman of Hootie and the Blowfish, will play Brewery Ommegang in Cooperstown, NY on Saturday, September 22nd at 7 pm.
Growing up in Charleston, SC, Rucker was exposed to the sounds of Otis Redding, Al Green, and Gladys Knight at an early age. Those R&B icons helped influence Hootie & the Blowfish's recordings, all of which featured Rucker's soulful baritone at the forefront, but it wasn't until his solo career that Rucker truly paid homage to the sounds of his youth.
"Rucker has made a fine-sounding country album, full of singable choruses, bittersweet fiddle and steel, and guitars with bottomless twang," - USA Today
"On his Nashville debut, Rucker's rich baritone, sentimental ballads and bright hooks made him the most successful African-American country singer since Charley Pride." - Rolling Stone
