The Grand Ole Opry tallied its 4,929th consecutive Saturday night broadcast on June 20 with a showcase featuring Darius Rucker and Clint Black.
In addition to performing songs “It Won’t Be Like This for Long,” “Hold My Hand,” “For the First Time” and more, Darius treated viewers/listeners to a rendition of his 2013 No. 1 hit, “Wagon Wheel.”
“Playing the Grand Ole Opry is always fun,” said Darius via Twitter. “Playing ‘Wagon Wheel’ on the @Opry with @Clint_Black on harmonica? Unreal!!”
‘Wagon Wheel” has been certificated by the RIAA as 8X Platinum for sales of 8 million units. The tune, which was written by Bob Dylan and Old Crow Medicine Show’s Ketch Secor, is now one of the Top 5 best-selling country songs of all time as certified by the RIAA.
Watch Darius perform “Wagon Wheel” backed by Clint on harmonica.
