Harrah's Cherokee Resort & Casino
Westgate River Terrace Resort, Gatlinburg, TN
Since his days as a Grammy-winning lead singer for Hootie & the Blowfish, Darius Rucker has launched a successful solo career as a country artist and is a member of the Grand Ole Opry. Now he brings his third country album to the concert stage with his True Believers tour. The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Album Chart and features hits like “Wagon Wheel,” a song which earned Rucker the 2014 Grammy Award for Best Country Solo Performance.
In 2008, Rucker released Learn to Live and the album’s first single, “Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It,” made him the first African American with a Number 1 country song since Charley Pride in 1983. Following two more singles that topped the charts, he earned the Best New Artist award from the Country Music Association. His 2010 follow-up, Charleston, SC 1966, included two more Number Ones, “Come Back Song” and “This.”
Rucker’s high energy show at Harrah’s Cherokee Resort & Casino (with seating in sections 201 and 205) is part of an exciting 3-night fall getaway to the beautiful Great Smoky Mountains of Gatlinburg, Tennessee where you’ll enjoy exclusive accommodations at Westgate River Terrace Resort.
This amazing concert vacation package also includes personal concierge services, a VIP Welcome Party with dinner, open bar, an entertaining DJ and prizes, plus a late checkout on your final day. The resort is ideally situated in the heart of Gatlinburg, adjacent to Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies and walking distance to dozens of shops, galleries, diners and attractions. You’ll also enjoy glorious views of the Great Smoky Mountains and the Little Pigeon River.
