Darius Rucker first gained fame as the lead singer and guitarist of the Grammy Award-winning rock band Hootie & the Blowfish, which he formed in 1986 at the University of South Carolina. After selling many platinum albums, the band broke up and Darius took on the challenge of becoming a country singer. It had been twenty-five years since the last African American artist had reached the number-one spot on the country charts and Darius Rucker got the job done with his single Don t Think I Don t Think About It.
