Darius Rucker just released “Beers and Sunshine,” his first solo country radio single since 2018 chart-topper and number one song “For The First Time,” and it just made this crappy summer 10x better.
Written by Rucker, J.T. Harding, Josh Osborne, and Ross Copperman over a zoom call, “Beers and Sunshine” may not only be the theme song of the summer but also 2020. Let’s face it, with one bad headline after another, the world has been a tough place lately. We could all use a break from reality. This song is that break. It not only reminds you to turn off the TV, but it also reminds you to take a breath and enjoy the little things in life.
In a recent press release, the award-winning singer shared, “It’s certainly been a hard year so far with a lot of heaviness around us constantly.” “Like it says in the song, I don’t know how we fix any of these big, real issues that we’re facing, but while we work through this time I think it’s important that we find the silver lining where we can really enjoy the little moments and the simple joys of time spent together with friends and family.”
“Cause everybody’s down in a world gone crazy/ Don’t know how to fix it but I think maybe / Turn on the good times, turn off the TV/ Yeah, the only BS I need is beers and sunshine”
While shows may be put on hold, the singer-songwriter has been finding creative ways to perform, stay in touch with his fans, and raise money for a great cause. His popular event Darius and Friends, where he has raised $255,000 and counting for the St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital, was live-streamed from the Grand Old Opry, where fans got a sneak peek of “Beers and Sunshine.” He also recently played Nashville’s Nissan Stadium for a “Live at the Drive-In” Show.
Rucker certainly has been busy and we can’t wait to see what he does next.
