Darius Rucker Trades in Guitar for Anchor Desk on “Today Show”

Darius Rucker turned in his guitar for the anchor desk this morning (Jan. 25) when he took a turn as co-host of the Today Show. Don’t worry, it was just for the day.

The “Wagon Wheel” singer had the opportunity to sit at the desk and be a part of the interview with former member of Destiny’s Child, Kelly Rowland, who is currently starring in the Lifetime movie, “Love by the 10th Date.”

“This isn’t your first acting gig,” Darius began his question for Kelly. “You starred as Luscious Lions mentally ill mother on Empire—that was awesome. Are you enjoying this more than music or are you just doing it?”

Darius, decked out in coat and time, looked right at home sitting down with veteran hosts Tamron Hall and Al Roker. If this music thing doesn’t work out for Darius, he can always fall back on his interview skills.

Check out Darius’ stint as co-host on the Today Show.

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
