Rucker, the former frontman for Hootie and the Blowfish, was last in the Tampa Bay area headlining the Tampa Pig Jig last October. The event sold out in a record 13 days when Rucker was announced as the headliner.

The Valspar PGA tournament will return to Innisbrook in Palm Harbor from March 13-20. Last year it drew 19 of the top 50 players in the world. Sam Burns is slated to attempt to win the Valspar Championship for the third straight season.

Tickets will go on sale Nov. 15 at valsparchampionship.com.
