Darius Rucker Lets the ‘Good Time’ Roll: Interview
To understand country and pop star Darius Rucker, one must understand his beloved hometown, Charleston, South Carolina. He grew up in a neighborhood grounded in family, friends and the church. His sister still lives in the house he grew up in and among his best friends are the five he’s known since kindergarten.
It was that close knit group and their parents, including Rucker’s mother Carolyn, a nurse, who were all just “trying to make it in the world” that helped form Rucker’s early years. Those parents, he says, “simply refused to let any of us fall by the wayside.”
