Three-time Grammy Award-winning musician Darius Rucker will host a new monthly show on SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio. On Par with Darius Rucker will debut July 26 (3:00-4:00 pm ET).
“They say that rock stars want to be pro athletes, and pro athletes want to be rock stars, and there is definitely some truth to that,” said Rucker. “It’s no secret that music and golf are two passions of mine. I’ve been lucky enough to play with and get to know well some of the best golfers on tour.”
“Darius is a very talented and versatile entertainer. He is also a fun-loving and engaging guy who is absolutely infatuated with the game of golf, which is something so many of us can relate to,” said Scott Greenstein, SiriusXM’s President and Chief Content Officer. “SiriusXM PGA TOUR Radio is an excellent forum for him to share that passion for golf and we are very excited to work with him on what will be a very unique and entertaining show.”
Darius Rucker first attained multi-platinum status as the lead singer and rhythm guitarist of Hootie & the Blowfish. Since re-introducing himself to the world as a solo country artist, his musical life has had a remarkable second act that has featured many chart-topping hits.
Rucker plays golf nearly every day when touring and was a VIP guest of Team USA at the 2016 Ryder Cup.
“Golf is the greatest but most maddening sport there is.” — Darius Rucker
