Our beloved Charlestonian, Darius Rucker, was spotted yesterday filming on Gillon St (off of East Bay) for his new video "Come Back Song." This is the first single to be released from his new album (called "Charleston, SC 1966") coming out October 12th and it's really catchy!
I have been a long time fan of Darius ever since he was the lead singer for Hootie and the Blowfish.
Fun Fact: In 5th grade when Hootie was HUGE, my parents took me to their concert for my birthday at the Gaillard Auditorium. My mom wrote a note to Darius on a piece of paper shaped like a dolphin (he's a big Miami Dolphins fan) asking if he would sing "Happy Birthday" to me and handed it to the bouncer. We figured the bouncer would just shove the piece of paper in his pocket and not give it another thought. Well, half way through the concert he sang "Happy Birthday" to me! I would be so excited if he did this today so I can only imagine how happy I was when I was 11!
Here are some pics from last Summer when Darius played on Daniel Island (also the night that David and Emily got engaged):
