Darius Rucker is making the rounds to promote his newest CD, 'True Believers'. He is scheduled to visit ABC's 'The Bachelorette' on Monday (6/17), and Rucker found himself on the set of The Ellen Degeneres Show Tuesday (6/11) to perform his country chart-topping single, 'Wagon Wheel'.

Rucker has made 'Wagon Wheel', originally done by the Old Crow Medicine Show, his own. It's not too often I enjoy a cover tune more than the original, but I have to admit that's the case here. He put on a memorable show with the song at the 2013 CMT Music Awards, and his performance of on Ellen was also outstanding. Check it out here:

The Ellen Degeneres Show has to be among the favorite TV shows for artists to perform. Her studio audience just seems to be more enthusiastic than any other talk show, daytime or night. Do you agree?
