Darius Rucker has released his brand new single, “Beers and Sunshine”. Written via a physically distanced Zoom writing session with producer Ross Copperman and fellow songwriters Josh Osborne and J.T. Harding, Rucker’s new feel-good summer Country single calls for slowing down to enjoy the simple things in life when the world feels out of control.
“It’s certainly been a hard year so far with a lot of heaviness around us constantly,” the three-time GRAMMY award winner shared. “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.”
Rucker also kicked off the month of August with the announcement that his latest “Darius & Friends” event has raised $255,000 and counting for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, adding to the event’s decade-plus total of more than $2 million. Fans who missed the 11th annual concert – featuring a ’90s Country theme with friends Clint Black and Tracy Lawrence – can purchase passes to re-watch the stream and continue supporting the fundraising efforts at LiveXLive.com/Darius through October 28.
