Darius Rucker, frontman for Hootie and the Blowfish, went country. As someone that was in college when Hootie’s first album dropped, it was a slight surprise, but only in one of those, “Huh, so that’s what he’s decided to do now” ways, much like Metallica deciding to cut off all of their hair between “the black album” and Load. Unlike Metallica’s stuff since their change, Rucker’s is something that I’ve added to my collection, and will regularly play entire albums while at work. (The key there: I think the entire albums are just that good, instead of only being interested in a handful of tracks.) This particular track is from his third solo album.
