Hootie & the Blowfish working on new album, tour

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - Hootie & the Blowfish fans can get excited.

Darius Rucker says Hootie & the Blowfish will do another album and tour even though he is a country star now.

Rucker says he will sing country music until he retires, but Hootie never broke up and they'll always be a band.

He says they are all writing songs and he just wrote one he is saving for Hootie.

Now they just need a bass player.

Rucker says when they asked Dean Felber to join Hootie, Felber said he would just fill in until they found a permanent one. That was 25 years ago.

Rucker's newest country album released earlier this week. The album is titled "Charleston,SC 1966."
