1966: Singer-songwriter and guitarist Darius Rucker, who first found fame in the 1990s as the frontman of rock band Hootie & the Blowfish, is born in Charleston, S.C. After releasing a solo R&B album in 2002, he signed to Capitol Records Nashville as a country music artist and released his first country album in 2008. His first single off that album, "Don't Think I Don't Think About It," made him the first black artist to chart a No. 1 on the Hot Country Songs charts since Charley Pride in 1983. He has since recorded the No. 1 country hits "It Won't Be Like This for Long," "Alright," "Come Back Song," "This" and "Wagon Wheel."
