Country musicians possess a knack for storytelling, which explains why most artists in the genre started out as kindergarten teachers or Stephen King.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m.
Singer-songwriter Darius Rucker continues to crest on award-laden waves of crossover success, filling the country-starved ears of country-music fans on his latest tour. Known for his pivotal role as “Hootie” on the seminal sitcom Hootie & the Blowfish, Darius Rucker has long since eclipsed his puffer past, leaving his old gang of tetraodontidae to craft a winning career in country music. On the heels of his chart-topping sophomore album, Charleston, SC 1966, Darius brings his winsome baritone voice, edible baseball cap, and trunk of hits to the stage, riling audiences with sentimental ballads, uplifting anthems, and a bottomless trough of tangy twang. Starting the show, songsmith and good ol’ person Rodney Atkins supports his new album, Take a Back Road, with a winning set of songs about families, farming, and philosophical inconsistencies in the works of Borges.
