Hear Darius Rucker Show Off His Softer Side With New Tune, “If I Told You”

Darius Rucker is giving fans a taste of his upcoming fifth country album with the release of his new single, “If I Told You.” Penned by Ross Copperman, Shane McAnally and Jon Nite, the mid-tempo tune showcases Darius’ softer side with his poignant delivery and the subtle piano accompaniment.

“I always tell people, the first time I heard [the Black Crowes’] ‘She Talks to Angels,’ those lyrics did something to me,” said Darius in a statement. “I probably requested that song eight times at different bars in Columbia, South Carolina, before going home, putting on Bonnie Raitt’s Home Plate, and trying to write ‘She Talks to Angels’ for Bonnie Raitt. ‘Let Her Cry’ just poured out. For me, ‘If I Told You,’ inspired me like ‘Angels’ as it’s not a song I wrote, but as a songwriter I would not change a line as it moves me to want to not only sing along but also as a songwriter it inspires a new perspective.”

Give the song a listen below.

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Chris Young Earns 3 CMA Award Nominations

Congrats to Chris Young who is a 3-time CMA Award nominee this year.

His song “Famous Friends”, which he sings with Kane Brown, racked up nominations in the categories of Single, Musical Event, and Video of the Year.

Talking about his nominations, Chris says “I was blown away by the fact that there were three award nominations for the song. I mean, there’s so much that’s gone into it and so many people that have fallen in love with it and supported it and, you know, just having a hit with your friend in the first place is great with a song like “Famous Friends” with my buddy Kane Brown, but then to be nominated for three different CMA Awards, including Single of the Year. It’s just incredible.”

Chris, Kane and all the other nominees will learn if they’re taking home trophies, when the 55th Annual CMA Awards are handed out in Nashville on Wednesday November 10 – broadcasted live on ABC.
