Darius Rucker to Make Opry Debut
He's sold more than 25 million albums, won two Grammys and has toured the world. But there's one thing Darius Rucker hasn't done that's high on his list: sing at the Grand Ole Opry. That dream will come true this Tuesday night, as the pop-turned-country singer is set to make his first performance at the sacred country music institution.
"When I was asked if I wanted to perform on the Grand Ole Opry, I yelled, 'Are you kidding me?!' I've been waiting for that my whole life,' " said Rucker. "To be invited where so many of the greatest country artists have performed is an honor, and I still can't believe it has been bestowed on me."
Rucker's first-ever country hit, 'Don't Think I Don't Think About It,' has cracked the Top 20 on the country singles charts. His first country album, 'Learn to Live,' will be released this fall.
