“Basically overnight, our lives changed when Cracked Rear View did what it did – and yet as we quickly moved from vans and college bars to tour buses and arenas, not much else changed with how we approached making music and sharing it with our fans,” reflects Bryan. “Edwin McCain told someone at the time that touring with us felt like summer camp with trucks… and that’s exactly how we want next year to feel, too. We can’t wait for you to join us!”
In the mid-1980s, Jim "Soni" Sonefeld, Dean Felber, Darius Rucker, and Mark Bryan joined forces at USC, giving birth to the musical phenomenon known as Hootie & The Blowfish. Across their six studio albums, this quartet, recipients of two Grammys, generated a remarkable 16 Billboard-charting singles. Following a hiatus from 2008, the band roared back with a full 2019 reunion tour and their first album in fourteen years, Imperfect Circle.
Mark Bryan reflected on the band's post-USC days, stating, “We'd started adding original material to our repertoire. Our songs went over well, so we decided to see if we could make a career out of it." Hootie's debut album, Cracked Rear View, commemorates its 30th anniversary in 2024, boasting chart-toppers like "Let Her Cry," "Hold My Hand," and "I Only Wanna Be With You," propelling it to Double Diamond certification with over 20 million copies sold.
Cracked Rear View, Hootie's debut album, will celebrate 30 years of release in 2024. The undergraduate band from South Carolina rose to fame thanks to their smash tracks "Let Her Cry," "Hold My Hand," and "I Only Wanna Be With You." With sales of over 20 million copies and a Double Diamond certification, the record is one of the best-selling albums of all time.
Originating from Stockbridge, Georgia, USA, Collective Soul, comprising Ed Roland, Dean Roland, Will Turpin, Johnny Rabb, and Jesse Triplett, is now based in Atlanta. Their 1993 album, Hints, Allegations, and Things Left Unsaid, featured the breakthrough hit "Shine," propelling them from obscurity to stardom after its regional radio play in 1993. Atlantic Records' 1994 re-release catapulted "Shine" to the pinnacle of the Mainstream Rock and Mainstream Top 40 charts, solidifying their status as a nationwide sensation.
