Liberty National in ColumbiaAgents working out of Ben Hastings Liberty National Agency in Columbia, South Carolina get to fully experience all the vibrant history and culture that the city has to offer. Columbia is home to both the first American woman in space, Sally Ride, and one of the most popular bands of the early 90’s, Hootie and the Blowfish.

Liberty National is Where It All Begins

While attending the University of South Carolina in Columbia, guitarist Mike Bryan overheard lead vocalist Darius Rucker singing in the dorm showers and suggested they form a group together*. It wasn’t until 1994 however that Hootie and the Blowfish had their big break with the album Cracked Rear View, which featured a slew of catchy singles, such as “Hold My Hand” and “Only Wanna Be With You.” After winning a Grammy Award and selling over 20 million albums, Hootie and the Blowfish continued touring and recording music until 2008, when they announced a hiatus so Rucker could work on his solo career.
