Darius Rucker Says Playing Live Is In His DNA

Darius Rucker Says Playing Live Is In His DNA

Darius Rucker shared “We’re BACK to playing live shows!! Can’t wait to hit the stage again this summer.”

Darius returns to the stage tonight with a show in Bethlehem, PA, and then has a schedule that takes him through the end of September as of now.

When asked if he missed getting to be on stage and interacting with fans, Darius replied, “Oh absolutely, that’s an understatement.”

He added, “I mean, touring for years I mean I’ve been playing, music for 35 years, and always on tour every summer, and doing all that stuff and you get used to it. And you always see a show on the page, there’s always a show on the books. There’s always…okay I’ve got a month off but I’ve gotta play a show this weekend. And not having that, is tough, and it’s hard and it’s really made me realize how much I love what I do. Yeah, I like making records, that’s a lot of fun. But I love playing live, it’s all I want to do. It’s who I am, it’s part of my DNA.”

One of the songs that fans will be looking to see Darius Rucker preform live in concert is his current single, “My Masterpiece”

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
