Former WYRK Taste of Country headliner Darius Rucker will be going undercover on an upcoming episode of "Undercover Boss".  They're dubbing the Friday, May 12th episode "Celebrity Undercover Boss" as Rucker searches for undiscovered talent.

On the show Darius will travel to Austin, Texas on a mission to find some great musical acts.  Among the undercover schemes; Darius will manage an open mic night, he'll work as a roadie and he'll walk along Austin's Sixth Street, famous for street performers, all in search of talent. 

So how does a guy as famous and as recognizable as Darius Rucker blend in almost anywhere without being spotted?  For the first time on the series, producers are using state-of-the-art prosthetics to disguise him.  Yeah, that's one thing, but how do you disguise his voice?  He has a pretty recognizable voice and I wouldn't be surprised if someone recognized him that way.  I guess we'll have to wait and see.

“Celebrity Undercover Boss” with Darius Rucker will be show on Friday, May 12th from 8:00 to 9:00 pm EDT on CBS.
