Darius Rucker’s love of football is well-documented. He’s an avid South Carolina Gamecocks and Miami Dolphins fan and even has a special man cave in his home which includes six or seven televisions so he can watch multiple games at once. The love of the game runs as deep in Darius as his love of music.
“Ever since I was five years old, I’ve loved football, and I love how physical it is,” he said. “I love the chess match of the game. I love the speed of the game. I love college football, but for me watching pro football is better because the speed is so much more. For me, there’s two times a year, football season and waiting for football season.”
Darius picked up a GRAMMY for his song “Wagon Wheel” on Sunday night and received three ACM Award nominations for the song on Wednesday, the same day he launched his True Believers Tour. He will release his new single, “Miss You,” to radio soon.
