Darius Rucker Reunites With Hootie & The Blowfish For Jason Aldean's Atlanta Show

Hootie & The Blowfish, fronted by Darius Rucker, will play a special show with Jason Aldean this weekend. They, along with Lauren Alaina and Luke Combs, were tapped by Jason to perform at SunTrust Park, otherwise known as Atlanta Braves Stadium, on Saturday (July 21st).

Hootie & The Blowfish do a handful of shows together each year, but Darius tells us exclusively that he was hesitant at first to agree to the band playing this ballpark. "They texted me, 'Hey, man, we want you guys to play Atlanta,' and I'm like, you know, 'I don't know if we're ready to go play a stadium (laughs), you know? We play but I don't know think we're ready to play a stadium,' and I thought about it and Jason's always been so cool to me and I thought, 'If you really want us we'll come do it.' It's gonna be a fun night. We can still play. We're old men but we can play." in Cuyahoga Falls, OH.
