Two songs into his set, Darius Rucker walked to the front of the stage at PNC Music Pavilion with the microphone in one hand and a shot of whiskey in the other. As Rucker made a toast to the crowd, he thanked Charlotte for their countless years of support. "I remember playing at Amos' Southend..." he said to rousing applause. "Hell, I remember playing at the Pterodactyl Club!" Rucker tossed back his shot before starting "Good For a Good Time." 

Before starting his next song, he thanked the crowd once again for their support of his career as a country artist. "A lot of people said this wouldn't work," he said. Roughly 15,000 people roaring in response has clearly proved those people wrong. Rucker, the former frontman of Hootie & The Blowfish, went on to perform more than a dozen of his songs — a mix of country/pop/rock and some of those old Hootie favorites, much to the crowd's delight.
