Sunday Good News Story: Hootie and the Vets


Darius Rucker, also known as Hootie from the Hootie and the Blowfish has carved out a niche for himself in Nashville. His 2008 country album. Learning to Live, spawned 3 Number 1 hits and a Grammy award for the singer. Kudos to him for finding an outlet for his music.


Bigger kudos to him for giving back. Below is a video from AP showing as he visited hospitalized veterans ahead of a Wednesday, March 3 benefit concert for Musicians On Call, which aims to bring together patients and music.



I love the one white dude who was singing along and teared up. Who know how much that three-minute song improved his spirits for the day. Thank you Darius for being an out-of-the-box PERSON as well as an innovative artist.

As I'm probably the only person that owns the CD he put out on Hidden Beach I'm glad to see him come up on the country & western tip.

*snickering* I own it.. but I'm a Texas girl and like a little country every now and again. He has a beautiful voice.
