On Last night’s CMA show, former Hootie and the Blowfish singer Darius Rucker became the first African-American to win the “Best New Artist” award.  Without a doubt, Darius has hit singles like “Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It” and “It Won’t Be Like This For Long” to thank for his prestigious award. Above is the video for “It Won’t Be Like This For Long”, which features Darius and his three kids:Cary, Dani and Jack

Darius the Dad and husband…

On wife, Beth: “She worked at VH1, and she was in charge of taking care of us at a show once. We met there but didn’t really start going out for three years [laughs]. I don’t think she liked me too much.”

On 13-year-old daughter, Cary: “She’s grown into a beautiful, wonderful, smart woman. She makes me proud to be her dad, and I love her. She’s funny, talented, smart and all the things you want your kids to be.”

On 7-year-old daughter, Dani: “She wants to learn the guitar, so she’s going to start lessons soon. I want them all to play something. Be like multi-virtuosos and we can have a rockin’ family band!”

On 4-year-old son, Jack: “He’s a little flirt! He’s my boy; he’s a good kid, he’s got a lot of personality. He’s a lot like his dad — he’s got my sense of humor. He’s always trying to be funny.”

  1. I like country music and i use to listen to alot of his songs, he’s very good. Nice looking family.

    His lil boy reminded me somewhat of Boris Becker’s youngest son from his first wife when the kid was a bit younger.

  2. Beautiful family. I like the fact that Darius is encouraging his children’s interests. Has anyone ever noticed that most of the more famous singers have larger than average mouths.

  3. Jinni, Carol Channing’s dad was half African American, look it up. Some of US have big mouths. SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  4. Aww his Kids are cute. I am so happy he decided to go solo. I was so happy to see him win at the CMT’s last night…. I love country music too – fell in love with it when I attended college down south

  5. I never listened to Darius Rucker when he was Hootie. But I listen to him now all of the time. I do listen to country !!! I think Dani and Jack look just like him !!! All of the kids are cute though !!!

  6. WOW…REALLY BEAUTIFUL, I AM GLAD TO SEE A BLACK COUNTRY MUSIC

    ARTIST. WE ARE TALENTED IN EVERY GENRE. BEAUTIFUL RAINBOW FAMILY!

    CONGRATS HOOTIE!

  7. that lil boys is super cute love his smile. is it me or as i read what he said about each kid the sec daughter he didnt say much and the others he ahd different character traits and their uniquiness ( if thats a wrd)

  8. I love Darious! I’m a big country music fan (Dixie Chicks in particular). Don’t knock it till you try it!

    Side note: Aren’t there some people who you just KNOW are going to marry outside their race? lol. His family is gorgeous though.

    • I have to admit I was not surprised to see that his wife was wife, but then again I think his ex is black (the mother of his oldest daughter).

  9. I actually saw some of the award show and I caught his performance. It was a really good performance and the other artist and the fans really seemed to like him. When he received his award, he thanked everyone for accepting him. He was very humble. I’m not a big country music fan but I enjoy some of the music and I’m thinking about buying his cd. I wish him the best in his career.

    His family is beautiful. His son is such a cutie.
