Darius Rucker Takes Over CMT

From Sun Records to Crossroads and Hometown Heroes

If you’re a Darius Rucker fan, then CMT is the place you need to be.

Starting this Thursday (March 23), the “Wagon Wheel” singer will be taking over the airwaves.

First, you can spot him crooning in black and white stripes while portraying Johnny Bragg of the The Prisonaires on the new episode of Sun Records, which airs Thursday at 10p.m. ET/PT.

Check out a sneak peek of Rucker as Bragg, singing “That Chick’s Too Young To Fry.”

Next, you can kick off your weekend with Rucker and John Mellencamp on their rockin’ CMT Crossroads. Their mashup airs airs Friday (March 24) at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

But that’s not all! You can get even more of the Charleston native next week on CMT Hometown Heroes, airing Friday (March 31) at 10 p.m. ET/PT.

On the special, Rucker returns home to South Carolina to remodel and redecorate the teen room at the MUSC Children’s Hospital. The Grammy winner’s mother was a nurse at the hospital, so Rucker spent much of his childhood there.

Darius Rucker works with RAM Nation volunteers at the MUSC ChildrenÕs Hospital teen center in Charleston, South Carolina.

Rucker is joined by Chris Stapleton and Brett Eldredge on CMT Hometown Heroes, who will also return to their respective hometowns to give back in a big way.

Need more Darius in the meantime? We’d recommend checking out some of his amazing videos, or perhaps revisiting his hilarious cameo on Season 1 of Still The King.

Writer and social-ite for CMT, lover of all things Nashville, and firm believer that Ross and Rachel were not on a break.
