Darius Rucker, "It Wont Be Like This For Long"
Darius started to become famous when he formed the band, Hootie and the Blowfish. He met the band while he was attending the University of North Carolina. One of his band members, Mark Byran, heard Darius sing while he was in the shower. The two became a duo and start singing at the local hangout spot called Hooters. They eventually recruited another member by the name of Dean Felber. Then Jim Sonefeld later joined in 1989. Hootie and the Blowfish came out with the following five albums; Cracked Rear View, Fairweather Johnson, Musical Chairs, Hootie & The Blowfish, and Looking for Lucky. These albums all had songs that Darius, Mark, and Dean wrote together. Darius was the lead singer in this band, so the media made him known as "Hootie".
