Happy 54th birthday to my friend Darius Rucker! Darius Rucker also known as front man for the band Hootie and the Blowfish.

Darius and I met at our annual St. Jude conference three years ago in Memphis and we have been friends ever since. It's always nice to see an artist on a personal level because most of the time you don't get to see who they are off stage.

Funny story about Darius, when he was performing on the finale of The Voice and Dexter Roberts was on there, I tried to get him to hook me up. LOL Obviously he didn't or Dexter wasn't interested because I never got a call. HEHE.

P.S. Don't call him Hootie becasue he doesn't like it. He isn't the Hootie in Hootie and The Blowfish. The name comes from two of his frat brothers in college.
