The infective hit song, "Only Wanna Be With You" pops into my head the moment I hear lead singer Darius Rucker's voice. Since that song was released, he has been busy lighting up the country music charts with his solo career. The Southern born and raised musician chatted with me backstage at TODAY and told me how he feels about the fried food of his home region. He also revealed the signature dish that he prepares for his family, a dish his kids call Poppasghetti.
