    Former Hootie and the Blowfish singer Darius Rucker is continuing his career as a successful country artist. The singer will release his new album, Charleston, SC 1966 on October 12. In an interview with The Associated Press, Rucker said the album will include 12 new songs and that "we just listened to them and saw what was rising to the top" when choosing which of the huge batch of songs he had written would make the album. Rucker's last album, the country release Learning to Live, was a success and has sold 1.4 million albums to date.

    The album's title is a reference to his hometown, the year of his birth and a tribute to Radney Foster's first solo album, Del Rio, TX 1959. Rucker said it was listening to Foster that first made him realize the possibilities of country music.

    Do you like Rucker's country efforts? Or do you prefer him singing for Hootie?
