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.”
