*Darius Rucker who is playing Tinley Park this Saturday, is very proud of his Alma Mater- The University of South Carolina Gamecocks. Recently he took notice of an interesting proposition via Twitter, as a diehard SC fan asked if Rucker would play a campus show after a 6 win football season:

And confirmed by the Sporting News, a day later…the University president responded!

Along the same lines, how cool would it be if a Chicago artist could do the same for a local school? I attempted to push the issue today on Twitter with a US*99 favorite:

No response yet, but I’m hopeful! You can win tickets to the show this weekend EVERY HOUR on Friday from 9AM till 7PM with the US*99 Ticket Blitz so tune in!

**Nashville some would say will never change, but as for the TV show now on CMT…it will be without cast member Will Chase who played country singer Luke Wheeler. The ex-love interest to Connie Britton‘s character Rayna James is staying with ABC for the upcoming show Time After Time. But rejoice! Last weekend Charles Esten who plays Deacon Claybourne revealed more Season 5 details- read more HERE. And FYI…there is a 378 page Nashville Wikipedia out there for all you uber-fans.

***Blake Shelton may never be reunited with Luke Bryan on the ACM Awards stage in Vegas, but “BLUKE” is making a comeback next year. In January 2017 south of the border, they will join a bunch of artist friends & fans for an annual all-inclusive experience of a lifetime. Read the full US*99 story HERE!
