Darius Rucker headlining WMZQ Fall Fest 2014

First he was leader of the ’90s rock band Hootie & the Blowfish. Then a decade ago he set out to become Darius Rucker, the R&B artist. He got nowhere in that genre, so he switched over to country, which brought Rucker success and even earned him an historical marker — as the first black man to win the Country Music Association’s New Artist Award in 2009.
