    Former Hootie and the Blowfish front man, Darius Rucker, partakes of the Christmas spirit in a manner that perfectly demonstrates his estimable talent. Rucker swears that he is not "Hootie" of the "Blowfish" fame; however, he sang lead on most of their songs after the quartet met, and formed, while at the University of South Carolina in 1986.

    Currently, Darius is mostly singing solo under his own name. In these three Christmas carol Vignettes, he is solo and definitely in the spirit for Christendom's second most holy holiday.

    Since Hootie and the Blowfish days, Darius has gravitated toward more toward Country Music, which seems to be more of a natural fit for his resonate baritone voice.

In the video below Darius is singing John Lennon's classic "War is Over".
