On The Block: Darius Rucker





It's common knowledge that Darius Rucker is a South Carolina alumni as well as a rabid Gamecock fan and supporter.  However, he is also the most humble celebrity you may find and we are proud he is a big part of Gamecock Nation.  Whether it's a cameo in one of his music videos or as simple as a hat on stage during one of his tours, Darius Rucker always finds a way to show love for his Gamecocks! He always makes time for his fans, he is always available for a picture or an autograph, and he constantly responds to fans on twitter, trying to take time for each and everyone.  

I think I speak for all of Gamecock Nation when I say, Thank you for everything Darius!  We are all proud of you!

Darius new album True Believers comes out May 21st 2013! Be sure to pick up a copy and support Darius as he supports all of us!
