HOOTIE & THE BLOWFISH FROM THE VAULT: BAND OFFERS FRESH TAKE ON TIMELESS CLASSIC “FOR WHAT IT’S WORTH,” AVAILABLE NOW.

Generation-defining pop-rock band Hootie & the Blowfish sets the stage for a return to the road this summer with this newly-released rendition of “For What It’s Worth,” the timeless anthem originally penned by Stephen Stills in 1966. The band’s version of this iconic song, recorded in 2017 during their studio sessions for Imperfect Circle, is finally emerging from the vault in conjunction with the kickoff of their Summer Camp With Trucks Tour, their first in five years. Pre-save HERE.

During that first return to the studio in nearly 15 years, longtime producer Don Gehman encouraged the band – which has long prioritized songs that make a statement, including “Drowning” and even “Hold My Hand” as far back as their 1994 Cracked Rear View debut – to pay homage to one of the most influential protest songs of all time.

“For us, adding our voice to ‘For What It’s Worth’ is about more than just a great song,” front man Darius Rucker reflects. “It’s about standing up for what you believe in, speaking out against injustice and trying to find a sense of unity. In today’s world, where there is so much division, this song carries a message that is as relevant as ever.”

The release of “For What It’s Worth” comes as Hootie & the Blowfish gears up for their Summer Camp with Trucks Tour with special guests Collective Soul and Edwin McCain. This marks the first full tour since 2019 for the band whose chart-topping, GRAMMY-award winning career has featured more than 25 million albums sold, including their 2x Diamond-certified debut album Cracked Rear View – which remains among the top 10 best-selling albums in all of music history – plus 17 Billboard-charting songs to date.

The tour kicks off May 30th in Dallas and runs through the fall, visiting arenas, amphitheaters and select stadiums such as Boston’s iconic Fenway Park (with special guests Barenaked Ladies) along the way, including a homecoming to Columbia, S.C.’s Colonial Life Arena for the Gamecock alumni. The band will also headline Rucker’s own Riverfront Revival Music Festival in their home state in October. Tickets to all shows are on sale now via Hootie.com.

Audio / Darius Rucker talks about what contributes to the long friendship and working relationship between his fellow members of Hootie & The Blowfish.

Darius Rucker (Hootie friendship) OC: …enough for us. :30
“I think the thing that’s attributed to our long-lasting friendship and career is the friendship is just we love each other and not just that we like each other. We really like being together. We like to laugh together. Our sense of humors are the same. We laugh at the same stuff. We respect the hell out of each other. I think that’s why we stayed together so long, that’s why we don’t have a lot of fights because we respect each other so much. And the career – it’s just because of the music. You know, even this year going out and playing, people are coming out to hear the music, and that’s enough for us.”

MEMORIAL DAY 2024

Memorial Day is a federal holiday in the United States for honoring and mourning the U.S. military personnel who have died while serving in the United States armed forces. It is observed on the last Monday of May.

Memorial Day, originally known as Decoration Day, originated after the American Civil War to commemorate the fallen Union soldiers of the Civil War. However, by the turn of the 20th century, Memorial Day honored Americans who have sacrificed their lives in all wars.

TRAVIS DENNING TRAVELS TO ‘ROADS THAT GO NOWHERE.’

Travis Denning is set to release his first full-length album, Roads That Go Nowhere, on Friday (May 24th). The Paul DiGiovanni and Jeremy Stover produced album features 15 tracks, 12 of which were written or co-written by Travis. It also includes features by HARDY and Josh Ross.

While the Georgia native has released a few EPs, he’s had time to put together his debut album, and he says it’s everything he wanted it to be.

“It feels pretty dead-on what I wanted to accomplish,” says Travis. “You know, I think the amount of time that we put into it, I don’t know, it feels like we checked pretty much all of the boxes. It just feels like a really solid country music album, and I think that’s just what was really important. The theme is there with the title track, the stories are there. I got to put enough of the creative things that I connect to where I come from in there that not a lot of people get to do, and for that I am super grateful. And then, of course, there’s some big rockin’, Nashville rock’n roll country on there. All that mixed together, it’s made what I consider a pretty well-rounded project.”

Travis has tour dates through the fall. This spring and summer, he will support HARDY on his Quit!! tour.
