Darius Rucker Hosts New Backstage Opry Tour
Country Superstar Darius Rucker is the video host for one of two new tours that have been added to the Grand Ole Opry's backstage tour line-up. The tours are the "VIP Behind The Opry Curtain Tour" and the "Opry House Post-Show Tour".
From Huffington Post : Among the Rucker-hosted videos are "Opry home movies", which share video footage of Opry debuts, including Vince Gill, Alan Jackson and Kenny Chesney, as well as vintage performances by George Jones and Dolly Parton. There's also an array of Opry fashions and hairstyles through the years.
This is a pretty cool gig for Darius, who is one of the nicest guys in country music! And don't forget, you can still pick up your tickets to see Darius Rucker at a benefit for Miles Perret Cancer Services Center Wed Oct 23 at Parc International in downtown Lafayette! Ticket info HERE.
And then there's that night the 47-year-old Rucker was asked to be an Opry member, the third black performer to hold Opry membership, joining Country Music Hall of Fame members DeFord Bailey and Charley Pride.
