Darius Rucker wrote every song on his current album, Charleston, SC 1966. But while working on his upcoming CD, True Believers, he knew he wanted to include the song Wagon Wheel, it was made famous by Old Crow Medicine Show, and Darius has his daughter Cary to thank for that. Darius says: ”So I’m at my daughter’s high school talent show, and I’m sitting in the audience w/my family and the faculty band gets up. It’s just the faculty from her school, and thy play Wagon Wheel. I’m sitting in the audience and they get to the middle of the chorus and I turned to my wife, and I go, ‘I’ve got to cut this song.” I’m serious. Darius goes on to say: ” I asked Lady Antebellum if they would come in and sing on it with me”. Two days later they were in the studio doing it. That would never happen in pop music…lawyers would get involved and then either it wouldn’t happen or someone would get paid big bucks to sing on it. Lady Antebellum took the song to a new level. Up until they added their vocals, I thought it was another song on the record.” True Believers is expected to hit shelves in the spring.
