Darius Rucker Says Quarantine Questions and Piano Lessons Lead To “My Masterpiece”

Darius Rucker Says Quarantine Questions and Piano Lessons Lead To “My Masterpiece”

Darius Rucker recently topped the country music airplay chart with his “Beers and Sunshine” — and now he’s following it up with “My Masterpiece.”

Darius shares the inspiration behind the new track, “One of the most common questions I got asked last year was if I had picked up a new hobby during quarantine, I always answered that I was trying to learn piano, and someone asked if I was any good yet.”

He shares that his answer to that question, sparked an idea with his “Beers and Sunshine” co-writer, J.T. Harding heard my response in that interview – ‘I can’t play piano like Ray Charles’ – and knew we had to write a song around that line.”

Darius, and J.T. along with the other two “Beers and Sunshine” co-writers Josh Osborne and Ross Copperman, worked on the new song, which became “My Masterpiece.”

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde Packs It All For Her Tour

Ashley McBryde’s This Town Talks tour gets rolling next month in Lake Charles, Louisiana. Then for the next 7 months she’ll be crisscrossing this nation playing shows from Georgia to Montana and everywhere in between.

So, with all that travel, and different locations, packing for a tour can present some challenges. Ashley shares one basic piece of advice when it comes to preparing for the road, “At first, learning how to pack for on tour…I really didn’t do a good job. I guess maybe I thought I was leaving for summer camp. So, I would spend a couple of weeks where I overpacked, and a couple of weeks where I under packed. Just let me tell you…if you have to choose between the two – overpack. You can put those clothes away when you get back.”
