Darius Rucker is no stranger to whiskey. The beverage as smooth as the Southern troubador’s voice has found its way into several of his hits including “Whiskey and You,” the whiskey-shootin’ music video for “Homegrown Honey,” and the oft quoted lyric from his No. 1 single “Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It”: “Between the work and the hurt and the whiskey.”

“Prior to every show, Darius Rucker collects his tour mates, band, and any special guests backstage where they raise a glass and toast the assembled group. Over the years, the toast has become a touchstone for Rucker and his crew. “That toast is an important part of our nightly routine,” Rucker says. “It’s really about celebrating the opportunity to make music together. And Backstage Southern Whiskey is now a part of that important ritual that we can share with fans.”

Fighting Cock

The bad boy of Bourbon is bottled at a robust 103 proof, but its 6 years of aging smooth out the feathers real well. Through award-winning packaging and point-of-sale, and a unique and irreverent marketing campaign, Fighting Cock appeals to both male Gen X-ers and serious Bourbon lovers alike.

The “kickin’ chicken” has been a favorite throughout the South for years.
