Darius Rucker enlisted some famous friends to appear in his new video for "Wagon Wheel." He's shooting the clip this week in Nashville with a little help from Jase, Korie, Sadie, Si and Willie Robertson from A&E's Duck Dynasty. Lady Antebellum sings backup on Darius's version of "Wagon Wheel," and the group's Charles Kelley appears in the video too.
So, how did the Duck Dynasty cast end up in Darius's video? It turns out it was his wife Beth's idea, and she's the one who ultimately made it happen.
"I thought we had no chance because they're so busy, so I never even said it out loud,” Darius says. “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 based on a song sketch by Bob Dylan. Darius's version will appear on his new album, True Believers, due out this spring.
