Darius Wants Grammy Nod

Darius Rucker saw great success this year with his single, “Wagon Wheel,” hitting No. 1 on both Billboard’s Country Airplay and Hot Country Songs charts. It also marks his most successful song as a solo artist, peaking at No. 16 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Darius thinks it deserves a GRAMMY! In an interview with The Dan Patrick Show he said, “‘Wagon Wheel’ did OK, that was a big hit. I’m waiting for the GRAMMY nomination, because I haven’t had one of those in a long time.”

When asked if the song would get nominated, Rucker answered, “If ‘Wagon Wheel’ doesn’t get nominated for a GRAMMY, country music is screwed. It’s as simple as that. I’m not saying I should win it, but it should be nominated.”
