Charleston Names a Street After Darius Rucker
Soon, residents of Charleston, S.C., will be able to take a drive along Darius Rucker Boulevard, just outside the North Charleston Coliseum, where hometown hero Darius Rucker has played so many concerts.
"That's crazy, man. That's crazy," Darius told Charleston radio station WEZL, which pushed for the name change. "You never expect anyone to name a street after you. I'm honored. I'm honored that they're doing that."
The city commission approved the name change Monday night (June 10) as a way to honor Darius for his many acts for charities for the people of Charleston.
"It's massive. It's incredible," Darius said. "I'm totally over the moon about the whole thing.
"I do what I do because I love Charleston. I'm not trying to get any honors or anything. It's because I love the city so much. It's just amazing to be recognized like that."
