This year was Tua Tagovailoa’s greatest season with the Miami Dolphins, but off the field, he surprised everyone by showing off his guitar prowess on the “ManningCast.”
Tua Tagovailoa Collabs As He Jams With Darius Rucker Ahead Of Super Bowl 2024
Country music artist and ardent Dolphins supporter Darius Rucker was drawn to that performance and the two hinted at a possible collaboration on social media in December.
Well, that did really happen in the end. As Rucker was singing his hit song “Wagon Wheel” in front of a Las Vegas crowd that featured numerous NFL players, including quarterback Daniel Jones of the New York Giants, Tagovailoa joined Rucker on stage.

The Dolphins quarterback Tagovailoa was seen on stage with country music star and renowned Hootie & the Blowfish lead vocalist Randy Rucker, wearing sunglasses, in a video from the early hours of Saturday morning that was posted on X.
The video then paned to the Giants quarterback, who was grinning and yelling the phrases.
The evening began with the Ultimate Madden Bowl championship game, in which Henry Leverette defeated Wesley Gittens, 35-24, to become the first Madden Championship Series player to surpass $1 million in career earnings. Tagovailoa hosted the after-party, which included a performance by Hit-Boy, according to Reuters.

Nearly as remarkable as his quarterbacking prowess, Tagovailoa’s guitar prowess brought him to share the stage with a country music icon. In addition to enjoying considerable success as a solo artist over the last ten or so years, Rucker rose to prominence in the 1990s as the main vocalist of Hootie and the Blowfish.
After making his career-long debut and topping the league in passing yards (4,624), Tagovailoa enters the game. The quarterback for the Dolphins is having the time of his life in Las Vegas while he waits for a new deal.
Not exactly what #FinsUp fans had in mind when they heard Tua would be in Las Vegas Super Bowl week this year.

Nine days prior to his Vegas performance, Rucker was taken into custody in Tennessee on misdemeanor counts of simple possession and casual exchange of a controlled drug, in addition to one count of breaking the law pertaining to car registration.
According to reports, the event happened in February 2023 during a traffic check.
A year later, Rucker brought himself up and was freed on a $10,500 bail.

What ethnicity is Tua Tagovailoa?
As the eldest of four children in a Samoan family, Tagovailoa was born at Ewa Beach, Hawaii, to Galu and Diane Tagovailoa. His parents reported that when he was a tiny boy, he slept with a football under his arm every night. It was believed that he had a keen interest in football growing up.
When did Tua get married?
Given their comparatively youthful ages, it should come as no surprise that Gore and Tagovailoa haven’t been married for very long. In July 2022, just before the Dolphins’ training camp began, the pair exchanged vows, making their wedding less than two years ago.
Tua got her first tattoos when?
Tagovailoa unveiled a new arm-sleeve tattoo on his right arm during the first day of camp on Wednesday. Tagovailoa was sporting a tattoo on his right shoulder during minicamp in June.
