Darius Rucker, known to many as 'Hootie' from Hootie & The Blowfish fame, will headline the first country show on The Bangor Waterfront in 2013!

And as added support, he'll bring Rodney Atkins & new country star Jana Kramer along with him!

He's had plenty of experience as the headline act during his tenure as frontman for his band Hootie and the Blowfish, but now Darius Rucker is getting ready to embark on his own major headlining summer tour as a country music star.

"I haven't headlined a summer tour since Hootie, so to say I'm excited is an understatement," Darius notes. "With this tour, I'm just excited to perform again for our fans, and I'm thrilled to have Rodney Atkins and Jana Kramer joining us."

The 45-year-old will undoubtedly perform his newest singles Wagon Wheel and True Believers, as well as songs from his most recent, No. 1 album, 'Charleston, SC 1966, which he admits was a daunting task to complete.

"I took the same approach as I did with the first one: Don't try to force it, just write, write, and write until you have the songs you like, until you are happy." "I felt pressure, but it  wasn't like I could do anything else than what I already do."

Darius's summer tour will visit the Bangor Waterfront Pavilion on Friday June 21st.
More summer dates will be announced in the near future. For more information and
