ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Award-winning country singer-songwriter Darius Rucker and multi-platinum recording artist Chris Daughtry will perform the national anthem at the NCAA Final Four.

Rucker will sing the anthem before Monday's championship game, when he will be accompanied by the Jazz Singers vocal ensemble from Booker T. Washington High School for the Performance and Visual Arts in Dallas.

Daughtry will perform before Saturday's games. He will be backed by the Fort McHenry drum and fife corps from Baltimore in celebration of the 200th anniversary of "The Star-Spangled Banner."

Rucker first broke into the mainstream music scene in the mid-1990s as the frontman of the band Hootie & The Blowfish. He released his third country album last year.

Daughtry and his band have had four No. 1 hits, selling over 8 million albums worldwide.
