All About Darius and Beth’s Relationship
The couple has been vocal about their love and respect for one another. Over the years, they’ve kept their private life, private aside from the occasional interview.
“Beth’s a strong woman,” Darius told The Boot in an earlier interview. “It takes a strong woman to be married to a musician, especially a musician who was drinking and partying as hard as I was, and I think life for us is where we are now. It took a long time for us to get to where we are now, and we say to each other all the time, ‘I love us. I love our family. I love us.'”
Furthermore, the former couple met while Darius was in Hootie and The Blowfish. Beth was working in VH1 in New York when they first crossed paths. “I don’t know what it was about her,” Rucker told Country Fancast. “I mean, it was EVERYTHING about her. I told her I was going to marry her on our first date.”
