Darius Rucker: A Hometown Hero for South Carolina

Goes Homes and Gives Back to Charleston

On Friday’s (March 31) CMT Hometown Heroes, you’ll get a behind-the-scenes look at Darius Rucker donating his time, talent and treasure to the Medical University of South Carolina’s Children’s Hospital.

Rucker went back to Charleston’s MUSC for a surprise visit, and brought with him everything he needed to remodel and redecorate the teen lounge in the hospital.

It’s a hospital Rucker knows well, because his mother was a nurse there when he was growing up in Charleston.

“I feel like it’s my obligation to do as much as I can,” Rucker said of the project that’s so close to his heart, “because this town’s been so good to me.”

While Rucker was there, he performed a few hits for the MUSC staff and the patients.

The special will feature exclusive performances, in-depth interviews and an intimate look into the people and places that shaped Rucker — and the other two heroes Chris Stapleton and Brett Eldredge — from a young age. CMT Hometown Heroes premieres on Friday (March 31) at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
