“My wife came up with the idea to have the Duck Dynasty (DD) guys in the "Wagon Wheel" music video, and I thought we had no chance because they're so busy so I never even said it out loud,” explains Rucker. “Thank God she called my manager because the DD folks took this video to a whole new level! Big thanks to them and Charles... It was a good time for sure, and I can't wait to see how the video turns out!”
“Wagon Wheel” was written by Ketch Secur of Old Crow Medicine Show and is based on a sketch by Bob Dylan. The hit single is from Rucker’s upcoming third solo country album, True Believers, which will be released this Spring.
Rucker recently had a childhood dream come true when he was inducted as the newest member of the Grand Ole Opry. His first two country albums, Learn To Live and Charleston, SC 1966 both topped the Billboard Country album chart and produced five No. 1 singles including “Come Back Song,” “This,” “Alright,” “It Won’t Be Like This For Long” and “Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It.” In 2009 Rucker was named New Artist of the Year at the CMA Awards.
