Last week, Darius Rucker went on “The Chew” to cook, talk about his music journey, and share some of his favorite memories from his career.
Carla Hall, one of the co-hosts of the show, asked Darius if he had any fun Halloween tales or traditions to share from his childhood growing up in Charleston, South Carolina.
Now I’ll be honest with you– I didn’t realize this tradition was considered “country,” but it’s the same thing my friends and I all did as kids growing up trick-or-treating in Arkansas– we used pillowcases in lieu of actual candy buckets (is that even what they’re called??) to collect all of our hard-earned candy. I guess our southern mamas didn’t want to waste money on those plastic jack-o-lantern buckets when we all had perfectly good pillowcases to tote our candy around in.
“It was always during football season when I was a kid, so I was always a football player, every year. I would come home from practice and go straight to trick-or-treat–with a pillowcase as my bag,” he said.
“That is SO country,” Carla said, to which Darius wholeheartedly agreed: “SO country.”
