Despite growing up without much of a father figure in his life, Darius Rucker says he doesn't hold anything against his old man.
"He was just living his life, I guess. . . I'm not mad at him or anything. I thank him for teaching me what not to do because now I just want to be with my kids all the time," the country singer says in the new issue of Parade magazine. "I hope they always know they can ask, 'Dad, do you want to. . .?' And that my answer is 'Yes.'"
