Darius Rucker has extended his summer tour in support of 2013’s True Believers. The country star will make his way to Boston for a performance at the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion on Friday, September 12. Tickets for the concert, which range in price from $39.50 to $75, will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation. Also set to perform at the harborside show will be special guest Cassadee Pope and hometown favorite Joel Crouse.

True Believers, Rucker’s fourth solo studio effort and third as country artist, follows 2010’s Charleston, SC 1966. It debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 and atop Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart after its release in May. Rucker once again enlisted producer by Frank Rogers (Brad Paisley, Josh Turner) for True Believers and co-wrote ten of the twelve tracks. He’s joined by guests Sheryl Crow on “Love Without You” and Mallary Hope on “I Will Love You Still”. True Believers has been powered by the success of hit single “Wagon Wheel” featuring backing vocals from Lady Antebellum. The Platinum-selling single was originally recorded and written by Old Crow Medicine Show and was based on a sketch by Bob Dylan. The lyric video for his latest single “Radio” is streaming below.

Following the show in Massachusetts, Rucker will travel north to New Hampshire for a performance at the Bank of New Hampshire Pavilion at Meadowbrook in Gilford on Saturday, September 13.

Pope continues to tour in support of her debut solo album, Frame by Frame. Released in October, it features singles “Wasting All These Tears” and “I Wish I Could Break Your Heart”. After years of fronting pop-rockers Hey Monday, the Florida native went solo and turned to country music after winning season three of NBC’s “The Voice”.

Crouse, a native of Holland, Massachusetts native, has been recording his debut album in Nashville. The 21-year-old country pop artist released a pair of singles in 2013: “If You Want Some” and “Why God Made Love Songs”.
