Darius Rucker Uses Beers and Sunshine to Claim the Number-One Spot

Darius Rucker Uses Beers and Sunshine to Claim the Number-One Spot

“Beers and Sunshine” was a first for Darius Rucker — it is the first “socially distanced” created song of his career…but now it’s also a 10th for him too.

“Beers and Sunshine” just became his 10th number-one country song!

With everything that went into making the track happen, Darius knew there was something special about it, and it was just the right time to have it out for fans, “I really thought the song, especially right now in the winter and with everything that’s going on, it was just such an upbeat song, a happy song, and I thought people would resonate with it and eventually they did. And that was really cool.”

Darius adds, “That one was also the first song that I had ever done that was all recorded over the internet too, so that was pretty cool. It was just one of those things, it was early in the pandemic and we were already like, ‘Is it really going to be like this? Is this what it’s gonna be like?’ (laughs) And that’s what it was like though, but I love that song.”

This Friday, February 26th, Darius will be heading to the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville where NBC News’ Today will broadcast him playing the newly minted number-one country song.

Until then, you can watch Darius Rucker in the music video for his “Beers and Sunshine” right here…

Luke Combs Gets 11th Number-1 with “Forever After All”

Congrats to Luke Combs – his song “Forever After All” is sitting at number-1 on the Billboard Country Airplay Chart!

This is Luke’s 11th consecutive number-1 song – and the 6th track off of his deluxe album What You See Ain’t Always What You Get to capture the top spot.

After hitting number-1 Luke says, “It’s pretty crazy having this song go number-1, being the sixth number-1 off this album. It’s incredible, and it’s all thanks to the fans. We have a really great team – from management, to label, to band and crew, and we’ve been lucky that country radio has embraced us, which means the world to me. I’m forever grateful to everybody that’s helped get my songs out there. I just wanna say thanks to everybody, and I never take it for granted.”
