The music world was shocked & saddened on Thursday when the announcement came that Prince was found dead in Minnesota at the age of 57.
Several musicians paid tribute to the flamboyant & reclusive singer Thursday night including former Hootie & The Blowfish frontman, now turned country singer, Darius Rucker.
Once again Heaven’s band just got even more incredible. One of my absolute idols #Prince. Thank u for showing me what true GREATNESS is!!

Rucker often performed ‘Purple Rain’ to close out his country sets. Watch as he played it back in 2015 at the Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville.
