Darius Rucker was honored with his very own street yesterday in Charleston, South Carolina. The singer-guitarist and Hootie and the Blowfish frontman has roots in city, growing up in the area, and Hootie and the Blowfish played the local North Charleston Coliseum in the Nineties shortly after the venue opened. Fittingly, the street leading to the arena was rechristened Darius Rucker Boulevard, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Rucker, who has been focusing on country music, said he may make a return to the North Charleston Coliseum to play a country set this fall. Hootie and the Blowfish aren't dead, though; the band has two shows set for August 23rd and 24th at the Family Circle Magazine Stadium in Daniel Island, South Carolina, and the group still has plans for more material. "We're gonna do another record . . . And go on another big tour," Rucker told Rolling Stone last month. "I don't know when, though probably no time soon."
