Artist Bio
Darius RuckerIt's a voice that needs no introduction. Darius Rucker's soulful, rich baritone instantly resonates as a comforting companion in this journey we call life.On Learn to Live, his first project for Capitol Records Nashville, Rucker has created a work that is steeped in the country traditions of meaningful lyrics and resonant melodies, yet sounds completely modern.As the best country albums do, Learn to Live takes the listener on a trip. The album's arc covers major life themes such as falling in love, birth and death. "This CD is a journey," Rucker says. "I realized I'm 42. I'm not going to write many songs about drinking, chasing girls or booty calls. I was going to write songs about having kids and stuff - songs about life."Guests on the album include Brad Paisley on the humorous "All I Want" and Vince Gill and Alison Krauss on the inspirational "If I Had Wings." "Brad just showed up in jeans and a t-shirt. To me, he's one of the best guitar players around," Rucker says. Gill and Krauss made Rucker, the ultimate fan, dizzy with delight. "They sounded like angels. You have these two artists singing on top of my voice...it gave me chills."Rucker has always had a close kinship to country music and country artists. "Growing up in South Carolina, it was always around, always on the radio," he says. First an acolyte of Buck Owens, Rucker naturally gravitated towards Dwight Yoakam, New Grass Revival and Radney Foster in his twenties. "When I first heard Radney's voice on Foster & Lloyd's 'Crazy Over You,' I thought, 'this guy's voice is bigger than Texas.' I'm thinking, 'this is cool songwriting.'"
