Platinum-selling Capitol Nashville recording artist Darius Rucker will release his third country album, True Believers, on Tuesday, May 21. The album, produced by Frank Rogers, features the current smash hit single “Wagon Wheel” which has just been certified Platinum by the RIAA. In support of his new album, Rucker will perform on ABC’s “Good Morning America” on May 21 and “Jimmy Kimmel Live” on May 22.
“I could not be more proud of this album, and I can’t wait for the fans to hear it,” said Rucker, who co-wrote ten of the twelve tracks. “They have always been my ‘true believers,’ and I hope they love the new music as much as I do.”
The album is aptly named, as Rucker’s fans are indeed “true believers.” His official Facebook Page recently surpassed one million fans, while the music video for “Wagon Wheel” has received more than six million views on YouTube. Directed by Jim Wright, the video features guest appearances from Lady Antebellum’s Charles Kelley and A&E’s “Duck Dynasty” stars Jase, Korie, Sadie, Si, and Willie Robertson.
