Darius Rucker’s “Wagon Wheel” Goes 8X-Platinum, Becomes Top 5 Best-Selling Country Song of All Time

Darius Rucker’s “Wagon Wheel” is the record that keeps on spinning. On Wednesday, Rucker was honored with a plaque at Nashville’s Country Music Hall of Fame after the 2013 single went eight-times platinum. Rucker was also told during the brief ceremony that he’s now “the only solo male artist to ever reach eight million singles sold on a song in RIAA history.” That also means that “Wagon Wheel,” co-written by Bob Dylan and Old Crow Medicine Show frontman Ketch Secor, is now “one of the top five country songs in RIAA history.”

Meanwhile, Rucker tweeted Thursday, “This doesn’t feel real. I came to Nashville to make country music, and I didn’t expect success and I didn’t expect to be on the radio. What a testament to the fans and their love of Country music. Thank you!!”
