NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — Darius Rucker has hit the top of the charts both as frontman for Hootie and the Blowfish and as a country artist. And now, he has a street named after him.
The street leading to the North Charleston Coliseum in South Carolina where Hootie and the Blowfish played in the 1990s shortly after it opened was renamed Darius Rucker Boulevard on Monday.
Rucker grew up in the Charleston area and was on hand for the ceremony along with North Charleston Mayor Keith Summey.
Rucker says he may return to the coliseum this fall to play a country set.
But first he plays with Hootie and the Blowfish next week at the Family Circle Stadium on Daniel Island.
