“Wagon Wheel” Hits No. 1 On Billboard Country Singles Chart
Performs on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" Tomorrow Night
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – (Tuesday, May 21, 2013) – True Believers, the third country album from Platinum-selling Capitol Nashville recording artist Darius Rucker, arrives in-stores today. The album features Platinum-certified single “Wagon Wheel,” which hit No. 1 on the Billboard Country Singles Chart this week.
“I am so excited that today is finally here and I can share True Believers with my fans,” said Rucker. “Having ‘Wagon Wheel’ reach No.1 this same week is amazing to me. I’m very proud of this album, and hope everyone enjoys it as much as I do.”
Rucker will perform tomorrow night (May 22) on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live.” Due to extended news coverage on the tragic aftermath of yesterday's tornado in Oklahoma and last weekend's tornadoes that ripped through the Midwest, his live appearance on ABC's "Good Morning America," previously announced for this morning, was taped and will be rescheduled to air at a later date.
