Singer Darius Rucker is hoping he doesn't end up on Santa's naughty list this year (14) after previously receiving a lump of coal in his stocking.

The rocker reveals his cheeky wife decided to tease him one year by leaving him nothing but black rock on Christmas morning, much to his kids' amusement.

He tells, "Two years ago, we were taking our stockings down on Christmas morning and my kids were like, 'Daddy, you were bad this year? You have coal in your stocking!'

"I looked at my wife and go, 'Really? That's what you're going to do to me today?' She's laughing so hard and I'm like, 'Yeah, thanks a lot honey.' That was pretty funny."

But Rucker confesses he might have deserved it that year, adding, "I probably worked too much or something."
