‘MusicRow’ No. 1 Song

Darius Rucker

Darius Rucker

Darius Rucker’s latest single, “Radio,” has made it to the No. 1 spot on MusicRow’s radio chart–imagine that! Ninety-nine reporting stations from around the country spun the title 3,111 times this week to land it at our chart’s pinnacle.

Written by Ashley Gorley, Luke Laird and Rucker, the Capitol Nashville title finds a teenager enjoying the freedom of the road with memorable songs blaring on the radio. MusicRow‘s Robert K. Oermann calls the title: “Thumpy and funky…Lively, romping and impossible to resist.”

Rucker is up for CMA Single of the Year at the Nov. 6 live telecast for his 2013 single “Wagon Wheel,” which is also nominated for Song of the Year. He will film with the CMA Country Christmas two days following (Nov. 8) for a Christmas program to be broadcast nationally on ABC-TV Monday, Dec. 2. Rucker is also featured on Sandra Boynton’s Warner Bros. Frog Trouble children’s project, singing “Beautiful Baby.”
