Former Alabama star quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is a man of many talents.
Tagovailoa, who is a noted ukulele player and also played the guitar for the Manning brothers on a Monday Night Football broadcast this past season, was on stage out in Las Vegas playing the guitar for legendary country singer Darius Rucker.
Anyways, here’s Tua in Vegas on guitar with Darius Rucker:

After Tagovailoa’s appearance on the Manning broadcast, a Dolphins fan account on Twitter suggested a collaborative jam session between him and Rucker, to which Rucker agreed.

Tagovailoa and Rucker were on-stage singing perhaps Rucker’s most popular song, Wagon Wheel.
The event was at EA Sports‘ Madden Bowl after party, The 99 Club. Tagovailoa hosted this year’s version of the event with Rucker serving as the entertainment.
Rucker, who has had an extremely successful solo career, was originally best-known as the front man for Hootie and the Blowfish, a popular band formed in 1986 that enjoyed tremendous popularity until its hiatus in 2008.
However, they had a reunion tour in 2019 and released an album for the first time in 14 years.
Tagovailoa on the other hand is coming off his best season yet as a pro, having thrown for over 4,600 yards along with 29 touchdowns to just 14 interceptions.
He also led the Miami Dolphins to the playoffs before they were eliminated in the first round by the Kansas City Chiefs.
Despite the early playoff exit, Tagovailoa is clearly enjoying the offseason.
