Hootie & The Blowfish

For a short time, Hootie & the Blowfish was the most popular band in America. Grunge music ruled the airwaves during the mid-'90s, but Hootie played a mainstream pop variation of blues-rock, and their easy-going sound netted them a string of Top 40 hits. Formed at the University of South Carolina, the group featured lead vocalist/guitarist Darius Rucker, Mark Bryan, Dean Felber, and Jim "Soni" Sonefeld, and the band's name referred to two mutual friends (not Rucker and the group itself). Cracked Rear View, the quartet's first album, was released in the fall of 1994 and became enormously successful, due in part to the album's first single, "Hold My Hand." The song had worked its way into the Top Ten by the beginning of 1995, propelling the album to number one and paving the way for three additional Top 20 singles: "Let Her Cry," "Only Wanna Be With You," and "Time."

Cracked Rear View became the most popular album of 1995. By the time Hootie & the Blowfish returned to the scene with a second album, Fairweather Johnson, in early 1996, the debut had sold 13 million copies in America alone. Fairweather Johnson didn't replicate that success. It entered the charts at number one and sold two million copies within its first four months of release, but it didn't produce any singles on the level of "Hold My Hand" or "Let Her Cry." Musical Chairs followed in 1998 and experienced even less success, and the bandmates decided to take a short break after its release.

Scattered, Smothered, and Covered was issued two years later, featuring previously unreleased material and several cover songs. The band returned with new studio material on a 2003 self-titled effort for Atlantic, and followed in 2004 with an engaging Best of set. It included all their big singles, as well as cover songs like 54-40's "I Go Blind" (which had previously appeared on the Friends Original TV Soundtrack). Hootie & the Blowfish toured for most of the year in support of the hits collection, then returned to the studio to record Looking for Lucky, which was released in August 2005 through their own Sneaky Long imprint. As the decade drew to a close, Darius Rucker took some time to launch a solo career in country music. He became one of the genre's breakout stars in 2008, selling over a million copies of Learn to Live and sending three songs to the top of the country charts. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

awitt56 & Igodfrey63.. . . n e i t h e r Darius Rucker or any other member of Hootie and the Blowfish wrote Wagon Wheel. A true country music outfit called Old Crow Medicine Show wrote and recorded the much superior original, borrowing heavily from a previously unreleased Bob Dylan song.....

this station is the soundtrack to my teen years as is it if anyone went through the hippy stage in the mid 90s
I love hannah jane. Nineties sound really takes me back
I heard Hootie got his start at Hooters in Fort Meyers wearing tight cut-offs to attract the Lady crowd. A partially tone deaf patron was attacted to his package and promised him a record contact if would pucker his lips and blow. The agent happened to be Abe Vigoda who starred as Fish on the telly. Life is funny that way.
Dakota Crabtree sings this.

Just saw Darius a week ago on his concert tour. The show was excellent and he played this song. The entire audience sang along with him. Great show, great song!
"Last night I tried to leave/cried so much I could not believe/ s(he)s the same one I fell in love with so long ago"
God I relate to this so, so much right now

Such a great album. Let Her Cry...wow.
Saw them at The Music Farm in Charleston many times in the early 90's. They wouldn't play until about 11pm, but we would wait. Really loved watching them there in such a small venue.

MUST READ THIS!!!!!! I'd just like to say to all of you posting these comments saying your going to die or date your crush are not true. You will not actually die or fall in love. Trust me, I've read one and never posted it. Someone just started it to freak people out. So can you please just chill out and stop? Repost to get the word around.
Bananaboy208 - here here!!

Some of todays Americana would be categorized Alternative. Music is music.
If Hootie were a new band today, they might be categorized as Americana.
