Darius Rucker (born May 13, 1966 in Charleston, South Carolina) is the lead singer and rhythm guitarist of the band Hootie & the Blowfish. In March 2005, Rucker portrayed a singing cowboy in a Burger King commercial for the Tendercrisp Bacon Cheddar Ranch sandwich. While humorous in tone, the ad showcases Rucker’s love of country music. The song sung in the commercial was a parody of “Big Rock Candy Mountain”.
The TenderCrisp is a chicken sandwich sold by the international fast-food restaurant chain Burger King. It is one of their larger, adult oriented products made with higher quality ingredients than their “standard” menu items.
