Learn to Live

Genre: Country; Lead Performer: Darius Rucker

The Artist Still Mostly Known as Hootie joins the decreasingly elite fraternity of faded pop superstars attempting to recapture relevance via a Nashville makeover with this patchwork series of songs ranging from pretty great (first single ”Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It”) to pretty god-awful (obligatory Christianish ballad ”If I Had Wings,” which tries and fails to rhyme the words killing and children). If you consider Darius Rucker’s bajillion-selling voice something of an old friend, Learn to Live is worth a listen. Otherwise? Meh. B-
