Rucker sky-rocketed to fame as lead singer and rhythm guitarist of rock-alternative outfit Hootie & The Blowfish. They released five studio albums and had six top 40 hits on Billboard Hot 100. In 2002, he shifted gears and went on to release his solo R&B album ‘Back to Then’. Six years after, Rucker resurfaced with a country album in tow, titled ‘Learn To Live’. Its carrier single "Don't Think I Don't Think About It”, earned him the record of being one of the very few black artists to reach number one on the Hot Country charts, following Charles Pride in 1983 and Ray Charles in 1985. He also became the second black artist to win an award from the Country Music Association, and the first black artist to win a New Artist Award from the Country Music Association.
