Watch Darius Rucker Sing “Wagon Wheel” on “American Idol” With Finalist Caleb Lee Hutchinson

Darius Rucker took the stage at the American Idol finale on May 21, teaming with finalist Caleb Lee Hutchinson to sing his 2013 No. 1 hit, “Wagon Wheel.” Penned by Bob Dylan and Ketch Secor of Old Crow Medicine Show, “Wagon Wheel” earned Darius the 2014 Grammy for Best Country Solo Performance.

“It’s so inspiring to see how much talent, passion and ambition these contestants have,” said Darius. “I loved being a part of Caleb’s experience on American Idol. He’s got that old-school voice.”

While Caleb finished as the runner-up, Maddie Poppe was crowned American Idol’s Season 16 winner as judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie gave her a standing ovation.
