When it comes to Christmas Darius Rucker looks forward to two things, one is a special dish that his sisters make and the other is one funny holiday movie.

He told us, “I’m a big food guy. I like food a lot. But my favorite thing is my sister’s sweet potato pie. I love sweet potato pie so much, and I don’t get it very often. And my sisters always make sure I get a couple during Thanksgiving and Christmas, so that’s my favorite thing – sweet potato pie.”

What’s his favorite holiday movie is a bit harder of a question, but he says, “There are so many great movies that I can think of just off the top of my head that are great Christmas movies. But it would be a tie between Miracle on 34th Street, which is still just great acting, great movie. I just love it. I love watching it. I watch it probably four times every Christmas and cry at the end every time. And I love Elf. I just think Elf is one of the absolute great stories and just funniest movies I’ve ever seen and it just happens to be a Christmas movie. It’s one of my favorite movies.”

Darius released a holiday album in 2014 called Home For The Holidays.
