Welcome To The Grand Ole Opry, Darius Rucker!
The longest running radio show in history inducted a new member last night in Nashville. Welcome to the Grand Ole Opry, Darius Rucker! Videos were played throughout the show welcoming Darius to the family, Among those sharing their thoughts were Rascal Flatts, the Oak Ridge Boys, Sam Bush, Charlie Daniels, Little Jimmy Dickens, Carrie Underwood, Alan Jackson and Brad Paisley.
Darius performed his debut country smash, “Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It” when he first came out on the Opry stage Tuesday. He was then welcomed into his new family by Vince Gill…not only a Grand Ole Opry member, but a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame. Keith Urban made a surprise appearance, and Darius had many family members and friends who came in to share the monumental night with him, including football legend Dan Marino.
Congrats to Darius Rucker from all of us here at 97.3 the Dawg!
