Posted by Amber Garner on 07/02/2008

Hootie and the Blowfish front man Darius Rucker can check one more item off his list of things to do before he dies. Rucker will perform live at the most honored place in country music The Grand Ole Opry on July 15.“When asked if I wanted to perform at The Grand Ole Opry, I yelled. ‘Are you kidding me? I’ve been waiting for this my whole life!’ To be invited where so many of the greatest country artists have performed is an honor, and I still can’t believe it’s been bestowed on me,” said Rucker.The Capitol Record Nashville artist has sold over 25 million records worldwide and can count two Grammy’s among his accomplishments. Now he will release his first country album Learn to Live, which is a little different from his days with the Blowfish. His first single “Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It” is already climbing the charts on the Top 20 country hit list.Its seems Rucker has gone country and so far he wears it well.
