According to TMZ, the 57-year old was booked on three separate charges, all misdemeanors. It’s unconfirmed which drugs he was in possession of, but the police report states that his license plate tags were expired.

Darius Rucker Blasts “Grown Men” Wearing Hats During Super Bowl National Anthem

The Super Bowl is right around the corner, and while I’m looking forward to Reba McEntire belting out the national anthem, nobody doing it like Chris Stapleton did it last year.

Chris Stapleton put together one phenomenal rendition of the national anthem, one so impressive that it brought Philadelphia Eagles head coach Nick Sirianni to tears:

I think it’s safe to say that this may have been the greatest Super Bowl national anthem performance by any country artist to ever play on that stage, and Stapleton admitted to having a great time out there himself:

“Man, it felt great. It really did. The energy was good and the crowd was hyped up for the game, so that kind of gets you ready to go.”

However, Stapleton also admitted that he’s not sure if he can go back and watch it:

“I don’t know if I can watch it, man. I try not to watch myself back too much.”

He received a ton of praise for his performance across all of social media.

And one person who was sending praise his way, was no other than fellow country singer Darius Rucker. However, Rucker pointed out one flaw with the crowd during Stapleton’s rendition:

“I just saw grown men keep their hats on during the National Anthem and that really sucked. Awesome job Chris Stapleton you killed it!”

And needless to say, a ton of fans responded to Rucker’s comments as well:

We’ll see how it goes this year in Las Vegas.
