DARIUS RUCKER TAKES HOME GRAMMY AWARD FOR BEST COUNTRY SOLO PERFORMANCE

DARIUS RUCKER TAKES HOME GRAMMY AWARD FOR BEST COUNTRY SOLO PERFORMANCE

Tickets for the second leg of GRAMMY Award-winning artist Darius Rucker’s 2014 True Believers Tour go on sale this week. Eli Young Band, Corey Smith and Joel Crouse will be joining Rucker, who just earned his third career GRAMMY award and first as a country artist for Best Country Solo Performance on the No. 1 smash hit “Wagon Wheel.” The Plain Dealer elected Rucker’s win as one of the most compelling overlooked storylines of the night, stating, “It’s been 20 years since Hootie released Cracked Rear View and Rucker is still going strong.”

Rucker recently received three Academy of Country Music Awards nominations including Single Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Vocal Event of the Year for “Wagon Wheel” featuring Lady Antebellum. The 49th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards will be broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, April 6 at 8:00PM ET/PT on CBS.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette calls Rucker’s live show “a killer set,” and The Morning Call hails him as “the best male performer in country music right now.” The first leg of the tour, featuring Eli Young Band and David Nail, kicked off Jan. 29 and runs through March 9, 2014. The second leg will begin March 27 and run through August.
