DARIUS RUCKER ‘TRIED’ TO WATCH ‘THE WALKING DEAD.’

With the premiere of Season 8 of The Walking Dead on Sunday (October 22nd), we had to ask Darius Rucker if he’d ever binge-watched the show (he’s currently in the middle of The Tudors – more on that later). He and his son, Jack, tried to watch the show for the first time, but couldn’t get through the first episode of Season 1.

“Jack, my son, wanted to get into The Walking Dead, so I said, ‘Yeah, dude. I’ll watch it with you.’ So, we were going to binge-watch the first couple of seasons, and it was the first episode, and we were sitting in my man cave, and it was the first episode and I’m sitting there,” Darius recalls. “People who watch it will know the scene I’m talking about it. It’s the little girl that’s facing away and they’re slowly panning into the little girl. I thought, ‘That’s cool. Boy, I’ll watch it.’ They pan and she turns around and I got up and ran out of the room. I mean, I pushed Jack down and I ran out of the room, and I said, ‘I cannot watch this television show!’ That was the end of it for me. That little girl freaked me out so much I couldn’t watch any more Walking Dead. I haven’t watched it since. True story. I ran out of the room. Aaaaaahhhhh I’m screaming. It was awful.” [laughs]

The Walking Dead, which stars Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Melissa McBride and many others, premieres Sunday (October 22nd) on AMC at 9pm ET/8pm CT.

Darius is currently making his way up the country charts with “For the First Time,” which is from his brand-new album, When Was the Last Time.

Catch Darius as he makes the media rounds this week. He’ll perform live on NBC’s Today Show on Tuesday (October 24th), The View on Wednesday (October 25th) and The Chew on Friday (October 27th).

DARIUS RUCKER HAS A FEW THINGS TO CROSS OFF ON HIS ‘FOR THE FIRST TIME’ BUCKET LIST.

Darius Rucker is getting ready to release his new album, When Was the Last Time, which is a line taken from his new song, “For the First Time.”

“When was the last time you did something for the first time?
Yeah, let yourself go, follow that feeling
Maybe something new is what you’re needing
Like a real life, let your hair down, feel alive
When was the last time you did something for the first time?”

Darius has experienced a lot of firsts in his lifetime, but there are still a few things he’d like to experience “for the first time.”

“I wanna go back to Africa, I wanted to see [Paul] McCartney, I want to see, I’ve never seen U2. It’s one of my favorite bands in the world. I want to see U2,” says Darius. “I’ve been lucky. I’ve gotten to do a lot of stuff that I’ve wanted to do. I’ve lived a really blessed life, but then I started thinking about it. There’s so much stuff, I’ve never been to Iceland, stuff like that that I want to do that I’ve never took the time to do, and I think now is the time to start doing that stuff.”

He’s already crossed off a couple of things on his list – seeing Paul McCartney live in concert was at the top and he was able to do that earlier this year. He also visits a psychic for the first time, which you can see for yourself below.

When Was the Last Time will be released October 20th.
