Darius Rucker is shaking off the negative and focusing on the positive in his just-released new single, “Beers And Sunshine.”
The feel-good track was co-written by Rucker alongside producer Ross Copperman and Josh Osborne and J.T. Harding during a physically distanced Zoom writing session. The song is all about living in the moment and shutting out the negativity and in times like these, it couldn’t be more relevant.
“Beers and sunshine/ Bonfires and summertime/ Back porch nights in South Carolina/ Ain’t nothing finer than me and my girl striking up a little lighter/ ‘Cause everybody’s down in a world gone crazy/ Don’t know how to fix it but I think maybe/ Turn on the good times, turn off the TV/ Yeah, the only BS I need is beers and sunshine,” he sings on the chorus.
“It’s certainly been a hard year so far with a lot of heaviness around us constantly,” the three-time GRAMMY award winner shared in a statement. “Like it says in the song, I don’t know how we fix any of these big, real issues that we’re facing, but while we work through this time I think it’s important that we find the silver lining where we can really enjoy the little moments and the simple joys of time spent together with friends and family.”
Earlier this month, Rucker hosted his Darius & Friends benefit concert and raised $255,000 and counting for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The 2020 total adds to the event’s decade-plus total of more than $2 million.
Fans who missed the 11th annual concert – featuring Clint Black and Tracy Lawrence – can purchase passes to re-watch the stream and continue supporting the fundraising efforts at LiveXLive.com/Darius through October 28.
