Darius Rucker Wishes He Could Play in a Big Professional Sports Game
Like many people nowadays, Darius Rucker relies on technology for almost everything. He came clean about his latest moments involving digital and electronic landscapes in a web segment called “Internet Pop Quiz.”
While visiting the set of The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the country star shared some quirky things about himself during the online video clip. He may enjoy his life as a musical artist, but Rucker would enjoy getting to see some sports action in his life with the help of the augmented reality technology catching on in recent years.
“Probably playing in a big, major sporting event. That would be awesome. Like, playing in the Super Bowl in virtual reality or the NBA Playoffs or something like that. That would be awesome for VR,” Rucker said of his dream virtual reality set-up, noting that his team of choice would be the help the Miami Dolphins go all the way.
One question asked to Rucker involved telling an odd story about a weird picture he recently took, where three dogs and a random woman were a part of the whole ordeal. It seemed as though he was still very confused by the concept of the photograph days after it happened.
“I took a picture the other day with a lady and her three dogs. She basically wanted me to hold the three dogs. They were little dogs, so I could hold them. But she was standing by…it was a really weird picture. I felt really awkward holding her dogs, so it was a lady and three dogs,” he admitted.
It’s been a great year for Rucker, though, as he lined up a slot on the Summer Plays On Tour with Lady Antebellum for the next few months and earned his eighth No. 1 single on “For the First Time.”
Rucker will be in attendance at the 2018 CMT Music Awards, as he will take the stage with a few of his buddies to perform a song for the broadcast. The ceremony will air live from Nashville on Wednesday, June 6, at 8 p.m. EST on CMT.
