Darius Rucker had the privilege of closing out the 2013 CMA Awards with his hit ‘Wagon Wheel,’ perfectly completing the country-filled evening with the classic.

Inspired to record ‘Wagon Wheel’ after hearing it at his daughter’s high school talent show, who would have known that Rucker would end up playing it at country music’s biggest night?

The 47-year-old singer performed the Old Crow Medicine Show version as the credits rolled and country stars stood up — probably ready to head out of the arena and change out of their long dresses and polished suits and into party attire.

Rucker had a huge smile on his face, which reflected the whole feeling of the 2013 CMA Awards. It was celebratory, filled with prime performances and thrilling awards, and ‘Wagon Wheel’ brought the CMAs to a jovial and lighthearted end.
