Darius Rucker Is Proud of Where He Was Homegrown


Darius Rucker was homegrown in Charleston, South Carolina, so the news of the tragic Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church shooting that claimed nine lives hit this particular country artist harder than most.

According to Taste of Country, Darius shared his love and respect for the victims during the Cedar Park, Texas stop of his Southern Style tour. To honor their memory, Darius stood under a sole spotlight, center stage, and sang the words to “Amazing Grace.”

Earlier in the week, while on CBS’s The Talk, Darius also spoke out about his support for those at Mother Emanuel and the people of Charleston. Broadway World quoted Darius stating:

I want to say to all the people at the Mother Emanuel, my love is there. But to the people of Charleston — people ask me all the time what my favorite part of Charleston is, and I always say the people, and they proved it through this. I’m so proud of my community, my town, the way we got together.
