Darius Rucker (born May 13, 1966 in Charleston, South Carolina) is the lead singer and rhythm guitarist of the American band Hootie & The Blowfish, of which he has been a member since the band’s inception in 1989.

Along with his work in Hootie & The Blowfish, Rucker recorded one studio album, entitled Back to Then, on Hidden Beach Recordings in 2002. In 2008, he signed to Capitol Nashville and charted his first solo single, “Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It”, the first single from his first album Learn To Live. Rucker has been a member of Hootie & The Blowfish since their original formation in 1989. He met fellow band members, Mark Bryan, Jim “Soni” Sonefeld, and Dean Felber, while attending the University of South Carolina.

In 2001, he made his solo R&B debut album The Return of Mongo Slade for Atlantic Records. Because of contractual changes, it was never released by the label. Hidden Beach Recordings, an independent label, acquired the masters from Atlantic, releasing the album as Back to Then in July 2002. Rucker also portrayed a singing cowboy in a television commercial for the fast food chain Burger King, promoting their TenderCrisp Bacon Cheddar Ranch sandwich in 2005; in the commercial, he sang a parody of “Big Rock Candy Mountain”.

    Hm, well that sucks. I stumbled on his page because I was curious as to if the lyrics/music were as good as his band hootie. Nope. Seems to be widely substanceless and shallow, also repetitive to no end lyrically and instrumentally. The music videos in particular are way annoying. Damn Darius, I know you're better than this!

    Is it just me or is the album Back to Then better than any of his country shit? And if you're a fan of his and have never heard it, please do! [2] <<< dude! i just returned to this 2002 Back to Then masterpiece and totally agree with you! Darius Rucker can sing any genre and it's always tops!
