When Darius Rucker (Hootie) joined the country music family...I said to myself, "what an acquisition!" The guy has a very distinguishable voice that sat dormant after Hootie & The Blowfish fell off the map. That's just the way the music biz works. They chew you up and spit you out. Luckily, someone in Nashville felt that Darius could make it in the ever-changing country music genre. So far, Rucker has had a lot of success as a country artist.
