Darius Rucker Coming to Grand Forks

My sources are telling me that country singer Darius Rucker is coming to Grand Forks and the Ralph Engelstad Arena on October 9th.

While Rucker has made it big with his solo career, to most over the age of 30 he is more well known as the former lead-singer of the rock group "Hootie and the Blowfish."  When that group broke up, he slowly made the change to a country singer and released "Learn to Live" in 2008.  I was pretty skeptical.  I guess I was wrong.  The first three singles from that album, "Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It", "It Won’t Be Like This for Long", and "Alright" have all reached #1 on the country charts.

I went from a skeptic to fan about a year ago.  I hope to add "concert-goer" to the list in October.

  1. Are you kidding me…Darius Rucker? What has happened to you, Reggie? You can’t be a fan of a guy who goes from being a below-average rocker with the longest band name in rock history to a country singer with a fake twang. He switched teams. He’s Jessica Simpson…he’s Arlen Specter…he’s Johnny Damon…he’s the dog in “Last of the Dogmen.” (great movie). No team- switching allowed!
