Superfan Darius Rucker Takes in a Cincinnati Reds Baseball Game

Baseball season is only a couple of weeks old, but Darius Rucker has already found the time to show his loyalty to the Cincinnati Reds.

Spotted by Fox Sports during a recent game at Great American Ball Park, the “Wagon Wheel” singer chatted with Jim Day about becoming a Cincinnati Reds fan while growing up in South Carolina.

“I started liking sports at a young age. They were great,” Darius told Fox Sports. “They were great to watch on TV. I loved all the players. I though they were great—[Dan] Driessen at first base and [Joe] Morgan. I loved them. I kept loving them. They kept winning and they kept being great.”

The country singer also got the opportunity to sing the national anthem for his favorite team at GABP during the 2016 season. No doubt Darius is stoked about the start of baseball season. He posted the national anthem photo on Instagram expressing his excitement, and the Reds are currently leading the NL Central with a 9-5 record.

“Baseball is back baby! Let’s go @Reds. What ball cap are y’all wearing this season??” he wrote in the caption.

Play Ball!

Baseball is back baby! Let’s go @Reds. What ball cap are y’all wearing this season??

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde’s This Town Talks tour gets rolling next month in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Then for the next 7 months she’ll be crisscrossing this nation playing shows from Georgia to Montana and everywhere in between.

So, with all that travel, and different locations, packing for a tour can present some challenges. Ashley shares one basic piece of advice when it comes to preparing for the road, “At first, learning how to pack for on tour…I really didn’t do a good job. I guess maybe I thought I was leaving for summer camp. So, I would spend a couple of weeks where I overpacked, and a couple of weeks where I under packed. Just let me tell you…if you have to choose between the two – overpack. You can put those clothes away when you get back.”
