Darius Rucker shared a heartfelt tribute to his fans after marking a milestone moment in Nashville, Tennessee. The country superstar was one of four inductees to receive a star on the Music City Walk of Fame during a ceremony on Wednesday (October 4).

Rucker was “honored to join the amazing names on the Music City Walk of Fame,” he said when he was revealed as one of the inductees last month, alongside singer-songwriter Don McLean, guitarist Duane Eddy and former record label executive Joe Galante. The group received the 101st, 102nd, 103rd and 104th stars this week.

“To all the fans, and the people who listen to music, I can’t thank y’all enough,” Rucker said as he shared a photo on Instagram standing by his new star. “You guys have given me an amazing life that I love so much. Everything I do, I do for the people who want to hear me play music. Thanks y’all!”

“I’m just a kid from South Carolina who got lucky twice, so I’m shocked and humbled that I’m here,” Rucker said.

Rucker’s Music City Walk of Fame ceremony took place days before the “Fires Don’t Start Themselves” artist is set to release Carolyn’s Boy, his highly-anticipated seventh studio album named in honor of his late mother. The project is set to make its debut on Friday (October 6), including ”Beers And Sunshine,” “Ol’ Church Hymn” featuring Chapel Hart, a track co-written with pop megastar Ed Sheeran, “Same Beer Different Problem” and other highlights. see the full track list below, and see Rucker’s post from the Music City Walk of Fame here:
