Darius Rucker is celebrating his tenth trip to the top of the charts with latest single, the upbeat “Beers And Sunshine.”
Written during a Zoom session with producer Ross Copperman, Josh Osborne, and JT Harding at the onset of the pandemic, the anthem has been celebrated for its calls for slowing down to recognize the important things in life when the world feels out of control. It was recorded virtually from Rucker’s home.
“It’s certainly been a challenging year,” said the singer. “Like a lot of people, when I got home from being on the road last March and we parked the tour bus for the foreseeable future, we had no idea what our future would actually look like. I don’t have the answers for how we fix the complex issues that we’re facing in our country or in country music, however while we work through this time I think it’s important that we balance the heaviness by finding the silver lining, where we can really enjoy the simple joys this song talks about like time spent together with friends and family.”
Rucker, who is currently at work on a forthcoming studio album, will perform the song this week when he appears live on NBC’s Today show Friday (Feb. 25).
