The former Hootie and the Blowfish frontman will round out the big three for the 2020 festival

The Carolina Country Music Festival announced their third headliner this morning. Darius Rucker will be one of the festival frontrunners for 2020, joining country stars Luke Combs and Eric Church.

Rucker, a native of Charleston, found initial success with his band Hootie & the Blowfish. Hootie formed in 1986 at the University of South Carolina and still performs a few shows together each year. They also host the yearly Myrtle Beach-based Monday After the Masters event, which raises funds for their foundation that supports charitable efforts worldwide.

Rucker has gone on to achieve a successful solo career in the country music genre, with hits like “Wagon Wheel,” “Come Back Song,” “Homegrown Honey” and “If I Told You”. His most recent album, When Was the Last Time, was released in 2017.

The 2020 Carolina Country Music Fest will take place June 4–7. Head to ccmf.com to keep up with talent announcements and purchase your tickets to this event filled with great music and summer fun.
