We told you last week that Darius Rucker would be receiving one of the highest honors an entertainer can receive: a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame. Yesterday, that dream he admitted he couldn't even dream about became a reality for the country star as he got his star in the "Recording" category.
Darius was obviously moved by the moment, describing it as "the biggest thing that’s ever happened to [him]," despite winning three GRAMMY Awards, being inducted into the Grand Ole Opry, the Music City Hall of Fame and more throughout his time in the industry.
Opening up his speech, he admitted, "I said before that this is stuff you don’t even dream about when you’re from South Carolina, you know, struggling growing up and just wanting to be a singer. That’s all I ever wanted to be was a singer, but you never dreamed that this stuff is going to happen. To be here, right here with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, I said over there it’s the biggest thing that’s ever happened to me." He went on to thank the three other members of his original band Hootie & The Blowfish, his current band, everyone that works or has worked for and with him, his family, and finally, he closed with "The people I want to thank the most...and the people I really want to give my heart to...are those people that go out, and they buy your record, or they go out and they stream your record...or they pay money, they pay these outlandish fees from Ticketmaster to come see you play...and they spend their hard-earned money and they wanna come and see you...that is what it's all about."
