I remember the first time I heard "Wagon Wheel" in 2005. A friend played it for me en route to another friend's wedding in Huntsville. We listened to it several times during the long car ride.

I once overheard someone say that "Wagon Wheel" is my generation's "Free Bird." I think that's 100% true. Not to diss on Lynyrd Skynyrd, but think about it.

The latest to jump on the wagon (pun intended) is recent Opry inductee and former blowfish Darius Rucker. He is including a cover of the song on his upcoming album, to be released in three weeks. Listen to his version here. Turn your speakers up: can you tell who is providing the background vocals?
