Darius Rucker Heads to Disney World to Celebrate His No. 1 Hit ‘This’
Darius Rucker has his fifth No. 1 song in country music this week with 'This,' and like the Super Bowl winners say right after their big victory, Rucker's saying this: "I'm going to Disney World!" Just like he's said he's done to mark all his past top hits, the singer is celebrating by taking his family on a trip to see Mickey Mouse.
"My kids have the deal, where if I get a No. 1 [song], they get a trip to Disney," says Rucker, who adds, "I forgot that I told him that, and my son says to me the other day, 'Daddy, where's ... how’s 'This' doing on the charts?' And I'm like, 'Ahh, it’s doing good buddy, its No. 5.' He's like, 'Yessss!' I was like, 'What?!' He was like, 'Disney World!' I said, 'Not yet, buddy! The way "This" is racing up the charts, it could happen very soon!'"
If you think Rucker gets to skip the long lines at the park just because he's a celebrity, well, you're right. He and his entire family are taken to the front of the line by a Disney cast member. As for his favorite ride, Rucker says, "Oh, I still think Space Mountain’s one of the greatest rides of all time. I do. People laugh at me. I love Space Mountain. Don’t like it -- love it, love it."
The country star is currently on tour, with his next stops being on April 26 at the Housing Works Bookstore Cafe in New York, N.Y. He will then be in Bakersfield, Calif. on April 28 at the Bakersfield Fox Theater. For a complete listing of all of Rucker's tous dates, head to his official site.
