Darius Rucker on His New Song “My Masterpiece”

Darius Rucker on His New Song “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.”

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.
