Darius Rucker

Darius Rucker first became famous when he created the band 'Hootie and the Blowfish' in the mid 80s. He was the lead singer and guitarist of the band. Until 2008 Rucker was solely considered an R&B artist. At this time he made the move to become a country artist, and he did so quite successfully. He has released two albums under his country label, and has had several number one hits.
I admire Darius Rucker for his ability to transcend genres of music. I have always enjoyed listening to his music as a member of Hootie and the Blowfish, and I enjoy his country music even more. I think it is a rare talent for an artist to be able to do exceedingly well in two different genres of music & reach an even broader audience.
