Here is what happened:
Country music star Darius Rucker was recently arrested in Tennessee on drug-related charges. The Hootie & the Blowfish singer was charged with two counts of simple possession and casual exchange, as well as violation of registration law. Rucker was released on February 1st on a $10,500 bond. His lawyers stated that he is fully cooperating with authorities related to misdemeanor charges.
In 2013, Rucker spoke about his past experiences with substances and how he had moved away from that lifestyle, stating “Doing drugs and drinking every night—I’ve done that. Trust me, I’ve done enough for everybody. And it’s just not how I want to live anymore.” Becoming a father helped change his mindset on both his life and music, as he welcomed several children over the years with his partners.
Rucker realized that he could write more about family in the country music genre, which led to a major moment in his career. He released his most recent album, “Carolyn’s Boy,” in honor of his mother.
The singer seems to have undergone a major transformation in his life, from being a rock star to just being a father. Despite his recent legal troubles, Rucker’s career continues to evolve and grow, with a focus on family and personal growth becoming central themes in his music.
