Rucker: Hootie & The Blowfish Will Eventually Release New Album

7/30/2012

Darius Rucker has certainly established himself as a solo country star, but the singer says he hasn't left his rock band. He tells Billboard.com he'll eventually rejoin Hootie and the Blowfish for at least one more album and tour, but Darius admits he's not sure just when that will happen. The singer says country music is still his current day job, adding that it's what he wants to do right now. Nevertheless, Rucker says Hootie and the Blowfish will "probably always be a band." He says they have a few shows together coming up next month, and they usually try to squeeze in four or five dates a year. Hootie and the Blowfish put out their last album, "Looking for Lucky," in 2005. Since then, Rucker has made two solo country records, and he's currently working on his third album.
