CAPITOL/NASHVILLE artist DARIUS RUCKER and his HOOTIE AND THE BLOWFISH band mates are receiving a monument where the band got their start almost 25 years ago in SOUTH CAROLINA'S capital city, according to THE BOOT blog. The monument will be unveiled on OCTOBER 21st in COLUMBIA and will be made of steel and black granite.
"It makes me feel great," DARIUS told THE BOOT. "We started out there and played a lot of shows there. Those were a lot of fun nights. We were there for almost 12 years. For them to put up a monument and to be acknowledging the success that we've had and all the things we've done for the community in SOUTH CAROLINA is awesome. When you think about it, we started our band so we could get drunk and meet girls. We didn't think we were going to actually get a record deal some day and do the things we did and get a chance to do all the charitable things we did. I feel blessed, and now for somebody to be acknowledging us, saying 'job well done,' that's awesome."
