Formed at the University of South Carolina in 1989, American roots rock band Hootie and the Blowfish currently features Darius Rucker (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Mark Bryan (lead guitar, backing vocals, piano), Dean Felber (bass guitar, backing vocals, piano) and Jim Sonefeld (drums, percussion, backing vocals, rhythm guitar). The band's 1994 debut album Cracked Rear View was phenomenally successful, hitting number one in the US and launching four Top 20 hit singles ("Hold My Hand", "Let Her Cry", "Only Wanna Be with You", and "Time"). The album charted as the best-selling album of 1995 and the following year Hootie and the Blowfish won the Grammy Award for "Best New Artist". The album subsequently sold over 21 million copies and became the 19th-best-selling album of all time. Prior to the band's hiatus in 2008, the group charted sixteen singles on the Billboard singles charts and released five studio albums. After ten years apart, the band reunited in 2018. In 2019, Hootie and the Blowfish will tour and release their first new studio album since 2005.
