Over the past few summers, Darius Rucker has become must-see show at the Cape Cod Melody Tent and the South Shore Music Circus. This year, will be no different as the country star has announced plans to return to both venues in 2012. Rucker will perform a pair of shows at the Melody Tent in Hyannis on Thursday, August 30 and Friday, August 31, before heading to Cohasset for a show at the Music Circus on Saturday, September 1. Tickets for each of the shows will go on sale Thursday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster for $47.25 and $66.25.

Rucker is currently working on his third country release and follow-up to 2010’s Charleston, SC 1966. “I’ve got two or three more writing sessions, but we’ve written pretty much the whole record,” he said in a recent interview with USA Today. The South Carolina native and former Hootie & The Blowfish frontman hopes to have the new album out by the middle of the year.

Released in October of 2010, Charleston, SC 1966 debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 and #1 on Billboard’s Top Country chart. The album has been powered by hit singles “Come Back Song”, “This” and “I Got Nothin'”.

Fans in Massachusetts can also catch Rucker this spring, when he opens for Lady Antebellum at the DCU Center in Worcester on Saturday, May 5.
