This diary will be short and sweet and to the point...
Darius Rucker, lead singer of Hootie and the Blowfish, last two albums have been well-reviewed and well received country music albums (according to Wikipedia, Rucker has four #1 country singles). But that still didn't stop a racist blowhard from...well, being racist
Darius Rucker performed "Wagon Wheel," a unfinished Bob Dylan song popularly covered by Old Crow Medicine Show in 2004, at the Grand Ole Opry last month. The 47-year-old former frontman of Hootie and the Blowfish also included the famous tune on his latest solo album, "True Believers."Rucker has been getting a mostly positive response on Twitter.
Rucker just couldn't ignore one country music fan's response to his song choice over the weekend, firing back at a fan who tweeted: "Leave country to the white folk."
"WOW. Is this 2013 or 1913," Rucker hit back.
"I'll take my grand ole Opry membership and leave your racism," the country music star said.
The sad thing is I'm not at all surprised that Rucker got the tweet but I am a bit surprised by the positive responses and support that Rucker received for his response.
