Darius Rucker

Full Steam Ahead

After the last Tim McGraw tour date, it wasn't long before we saw some familiar faces. Our very next show in Aberdeen, South Dakota was opening up for our pal Kip Moore. We had a beautiful night, a long set and a huge crowd! The night was topped off with some fun with Kip and his guys - and then getting a good laugh while Cass and Kip did their ALS ice bucket challenge videos. Watch here: 

After Aberdeen, we hit a great new club in Sioux Falls called The District - very cool place and a killer crowd!  The next day we played the Dodge County Fair in Juneau, Wisconsin. It was a beautiful day - until show time! As we hit the stage, the dark clouds started rolling in and the wind picked up. We had fast winds and a few drops but luckily, most of the rain held up till just after the show. 

And then we battled the heat. Last weekend we spent three days in Cassadee's home state of Florida. We headlined at clubs in Tampa, Orlando, and Jacksonville. We got to spend some fun hang time with Cassadee's family and celebrate our Tour Manager Don's birthday - much cake was eaten! It was brutally hot in Florida but thankfully our shows were all indoors. Aaron Parker opened up for us on this run that hit The Dallas Bull, House of Blues, and Mavericks - all of which took great care of us!

On the way back to Nashville, we stopped to play a show in Huntsville, Alabama opening for Darius Rucker. This one was a day show, outdoors... in Alabama... in August - It was not cold. After a long set of giving all we got, we were soaked! It was way worth it of course and later that night, Cassadee sang a couple tunes with Darius during his set. 

We are now on the road to play my home state of Connecticut where I am excited to see friends and family. Then we'll be off to shows in NJ, OH, and Panama City, Florida. More soon...
