This week on Undercover Boss, country singer Darius Rucker puts on an elaborate disguise as he seeks out new talent.
Rucker had six top 40 hits with his rock band Hootie & the Blowfish and then went on to release an R&B album, before moving to the country genre.
His 2008 album Learn to Live spawned several singles that made the number one spot on the Hot Country Songs chart, the first black artist to manage this since 1983.
He continued this success by being the first black artist to win the New Artist Award from the CMA and released a second hit album in 2010.
He’s currently working on what will be his fifth album in the country genre, but he is also keen to find new talent.
To this end he goes in the makeup chair and undergoes a transformation that makes him unrecognizable with a wig and prosthetics.
He then runs an open mic evening in search of some new singers and is impressed with what he sees.
Rucker also spends some time working as a roadie and takes a walk down Austin’s Sixth Street, where he is on the look out for street musicians with that something special.
Undercover Boss airs Fridays at 8/7c on CBS.
