Darius Rucker was surprised with a plaque on Wed. February 12th, during a visit to the Country Music Hall Of Fame to celebrate the RIAA’s recent 8x-Platinum certification of his hit song “Wagon Wheel.” Since topping the charts for back-to-back weeks in 2013, “Wagon Wheel” is now one of the top five best-selling Country songs of all time and Darius is now the only solo male country artist to achieve the honor of an 8x-plus multi-Platinum song in RIAA’s history.


“Wagon Wheel” earned Darius a Grammy for ‘Best Country Solo Performance’ at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards, the third of his career, and we are sure there are many more to come! Congratulations Hootie!
