Darius Rucker rides 'Wagon Wheel' to top of charts

(Continued)

Secor thinks that kind of cross-pollination is an important legacy of the song as well and hopes the powers that be in mainstream country music are paying attention.

"Country music has made it damn near impossible to get a song like 'Wagon Wheel' into the arena," he said. "We're sitting out there on a side stage out in the parking lot somewhere. But this song managed to seep in somehow. As someone who's interested in seeing country music come around and look at its parentage and be a little more respectful to it, I'm really pleased that this song is helping to do that kind of work in Music City."
