Darius Rucker Best New Artist – Already Best Dad


darius-rucker-best-new-artist-cmasDarius Rucker, formerly of Hootie and the Blowfish,  won the Best New Artist award at the CMA’s.

It’s really cool that he used his own kids in his video “It Won’t Be Like This For Long.” All three kids, Cary, Dani and Jack are beautiful. I can see why he would want to show this off.

He did brag on his family a bit:

On wife, Beth: “She worked at VH1, and she was in charge of taking care of us at a show once. We met there but didn’t really start going out for three years [laughs]. I don’t think she liked me too much.”

On 13-year-old daughter, Cary: “She’s grown into a beautiful, wonderful, smart woman. She makes me proud to be her dad, and I love her. She’s funny, talented, smart and all the things you want your kids to be.”

On 7-year-old daughter, Dani: “She wants to learn the guitar, so she’s going to start lessons soon. I want them all to play something. Be like multi-virtuosos and we can have a rockin’ family band!”

On 4-year-old son, Jack: “He’s a little flirt! He’s my boy; he’s a good kid, he’s got a lot of personality. He’s a lot like his dad — he’s got my sense of humor. He’s always trying to be funny.”

It sounds like they are all doing pretty well. They are all just normal kids with normal likes and dislikes, maybe even well-adjusted.
