Darius Rucker shot down a racist tweeter, who subsequently deleted their account.
Darius Rucker's racist tweet, directed squarely at the singer-songwriter for making country music, was the talk of Twitter this week. A user named pqkullman - who has since deleted his account - tweeted to Rucker, "Leave country to the white folk," following a discussion about the classic song 'Wagon Wheel,' written by Bob Dylan and finished by Old Crow Medicine Show.
Obviously offended by the tweeted, Rucker replied, "WOW. Is this 2013 or 1913[?]" adding, "Ill take my grand ole Opry membership and leave your racism. Wow." The former Hootie & The Blowfish singer signed off by tweeting, "Gotta go to bed this has been hilarious tonight.If any hater thinks I care what u think. I don't make music for u. So don't listen."
The Hootie and the Blowfish singer has responded admirably to the online racist.
Darius Rucker racist tweet has caused an outcry among the Twitter-verse, with the Hootie and the Blowfish singer receiving a rather uncalled for, to say the least, reply to his recent live cover of a Bob Dylan song. The song, 'Wagon Wheel,' was originally penned by Dylan, but achieved it's highest form of recognition when Old Crow Medicine covered the track nearly a decade ago.
Darius tweeted a thank you to Dylan and OCM for letting him use the song, his tweet reading; "To Bob Dylan and my friend Ketch Secor and all the boys @crowmedicine thanks for an amazing tune. OCMS is the friiggin real deal. Much love."
Darius Rucker gave a reasoned response to the racist outburst

Darius Rucker's acceptance by the country music fraternity is complete! The former rocker has been invited to join the Grand Ole Opry, which in country terms is a pretty big deal. The Huffington Post reports that Rucker performed at the legendary venue in Nasville on Tuesday (October 2nd) and then received a surprise visitor in the form of Brad Paisley, who invited him to join. Only the best and most authentic country performers are invited to join the Opry, so this is important stuff for the 46 year-old.
