Darius Rucker to Join The Grand Ole Opry

Darius Rucker said a dream came true Tuesday night at the Grand Ole Opry when he was asked by his good buddy Brad Paisley to become the newest member. Formerly with Hootie and the Blowfish, Rucker was asked if he planned to stay in country music for a while. He responded with "until they kick me out and say we don't want to play your records anymore, I'll be right here."

Chris Young kicks off his first headliner tour, Liquid Neon, next month starting with a sold out show at Nashville's Ryman Auditorium. Thomas Rhett and Joanna Smith will open the shows. Over the past two years, Young has toured with Jason Aldean, Alan Jackson, Miranda Lambert and Rascal Flatts. Tour dates and more information can be found at
