Darius Rucker to Serve as Official Ambassador for South Carolina Tourism

From titling his 2010 album, Charleston, SC 1966, to his ardent support of the University of South Carolina Gamecocks, it’s no secret Darius Rucker is a Palmetto State pundit through and through. Now he has finally found the perfect job.

Darius will partner with the Department of Parks, Recreation & Tourism to serve as an official ambassador for South Carolina tourism in 2020.

Darius will make appearances at several major tourism events, including the RBC Heritage golf tournament on Hilton Head Island in April. He also will appear on marketing material for the state’s DiSCover campaign and as the cover story for the state’s official vacation guide.

As Darius shared with Nash County Daily a couple of years ago, his love for his hometown of Charleston, S.C., runs deep.

“Charleston is home,” says Darius. “I think it’s the greatest city in the world. The people are so nice. I love the weather. I love the fact I can play golf year round. It’s just one of those towns. I think the restaurants are absolutely incredible. I love to take my kids and just walk downtown. And just people watch and see all the amazing history. I can live wherever I want, but when I think about it, I don’t want to live anywhere but Charleston.”

Luke Combs Gets 11th Number-1 with “Forever After All”

Congrats to Luke Combs – his song “Forever After All” is sitting at number-1 on the Billboard Country Airplay Chart!

This is Luke’s 11th consecutive number-1 song – and the 6th track off of his deluxe album What You See Ain’t Always What You Get to capture the top spot.

After hitting number-1 Luke says, “It’s pretty crazy having this song go number-1, being the sixth number-1 off this album. It’s incredible, and it’s all thanks to the fans. We have a really great team – from management, to label, to band and crew, and we’ve been lucky that country radio has embraced us, which means the world to me. I’m forever grateful to everybody that’s helped get my songs out there. I just wanna say thanks to everybody, and I never take it for granted.”
