Stagecoach festival and Darius Rucker

Darius Rucker is to the right of me (I’m in the press tent) and just performed “It Won’t Be Like This For Long” on the Mane stage. His band’s sound is really crisp and his vocals sound as strong now as on his album “Learn To Live.” On the way in I heard him singing the Hootie and the Blowfish hit “Let Her Cry” and now he’s on their hit “Hold My Hand.” I guess the thinking is if you have no idea about his country material you’ll definitely know these songs (and I can hear the audience singing along so he’s right).
