It's hard to believe that Darius Rucker has been kicking around in the country music business since 2008. That was the year he crossed over from the rock/pop world and a well-known band called Hootie and the Blowfish. Although Darius charted some great songs with Hootie in the 90's, it has become evident that he should have been in the country world all along.

To his credit, Darius became the first black American to chart a number one country song with "Don't Think I Don't Think About It." Charley Pride was the last to do it in 1983. Impressive. He also won CMA's New Country Artist award in 2009. And he's also got a couple more number one's tucked under his belt with "Alright" and "It Won't Be Like This for Long."

Darius has a long career ahead of him in country music. We're glad to have him.

His new release, 'True Believers,' is really a great love song. Check out the video.
