NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Darius Rucker’s surprise invitation to be a member of the Grand Ole Opry is a moment he says he’ll always cherish.

And now fans will be able to share that experience with him over and over again.

The singer who rose to fame as the frontman for South Carolina rockers Hootie & The Blowfish but began to pursue his lifelong passion for country music a few years ago is the video host for one of two new tours that have been added to the Opry’s backstage tour line-up.

The new tours are the “VIP Behind The Opry Curtain Tour” and the “Opry House Post-Show Tour,” which Rucker hosts and where he discusses his induction into the Opry last October.
