“Beers and Sunshine” was a first for Darius Rucker — it is the first “socially distanced” created song of his career…but now it’s also a 10th for him too.
“Beers and Sunshine” just became his 10th number-one country song!
With everything that went into making the track happen, Darius knew there was something special about it, and it was just the right time to have it out for fans, “I really thought the song, especially right now in the winter and with everything that’s going on, it was just such an upbeat song, a happy song, and I thought people would resonate with it and eventually they did. And that was really cool.”
Darius adds, “That one was also the first song that I had ever done that was all recorded over the internet too, so that was pretty cool. It was just one of those things, it was early in the pandemic and we were already like, ‘Is it really going to be like this? Is this what it’s gonna be like?’ (laughs) And that’s what it was like though, but I love that song.”
This Friday, February 26th, Darius will be heading to the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville where NBC News’ Today will broadcast him playing the newly minted number-one country song.
