Darius Rucker Tackles Weighty Issues in Interview
Darius Rucker is no stranger to giving interviews. Over the past 16 years, he's been featured in countless national publications and TV programs detailing his musical adventures with Hootie & the Blowfish, as well as his wildly successful solo country endeavor. Throughout the years, Darius has been asked an untold number of questions -- some relevant and some, well, not so much.
"One time I was doing an interview," Darius tells The Boot, "and we were talking about my music and everything. "Then, out of the blue, the person interviewing me asked, 'How much do you weigh?'"
Darius says he was rendered speechless.
"I almost wanted to come back with, 'Well, why do you need to know?'" he says with a laugh. "It was just so random! I just thought, 'Wow ... really?' I thought it was weird."
Darius will weigh in on other more pertinent topics in future interviews, once he releases the follow-up to his platinum-selling country album, 'Learn to Live.' He's currently in the studio working on the disc, as his latest country single, 'History in the Making,' continues its run in the Top 10.
