More fun announcements keep rolling in for Garth Brooks shows this weekend in Minnesota! First it was announced that King Calaway will be the opening act for the Friday night show, now we are finding out that Darius Rucker will be the opening act for Saturday, May 4th!

Darius Rucker is a multi-platinum singer and songwriter who has made a name for himself as a solo artist, along with being the lead singer of Hootie and the Blowfish.

With hits like "Alright", "Come Back Song", "For the First Time" and his rendition of "Wagon Wheel" he will be the perfect performer to get the crowd ready for Garth Brooks.

Tickets are sold out for both Garth Brooks shows May 3rd and 4th. But if you are looking to catch Mr. Rucker in Minnesota he will be performing at the MN State Fair Grandstand in August!
