Darius Rucker is set to host the ACM Lifting Lives Celebrity Golf Classic for the second consecutive year as one of the events leading up to this year’s ACM Awards. The event will take place April 6th at TPC Las Vegas and will benefit ACM Lifting Lives’ Diane Holcomb Emergency Relief Fund, which provides immediate relief to those in need in the music industry.
To say Darius is an avid golfer is an understatement — he loves the sport, and not just for the athleticism. “I love being outside. I get outside so little, really, if you look at the whole thing,” says Darius. “It’s me against the course. I love that.”
The 48th Annual ACM Awards will air live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena April 7th on CBS.
The South Carolina native is currently making his way up the country charts with his latest single, “Wagon Wheel,” which is from his upcoming album, True Believers.
