Three-time GRAMMY Award-winner Darius Rucker is once more captivating audiences with what Billboard praises as “one of the most distinctive voices of country’s modern era” with his new studio album, “Carolyn’s Boy”, released October 6th.
The album – Rucker’s first solo outing in six years – features new single ‘Southern Comfort’, a heartfelt homage to the South, as well as the already-released tracks, “Fires Don’t Start Themselves”, the No. 1 hit “Beers And Sunshine”, plus “Have A Good Time”. Featuring the feel-good warmth and emotion that fans have come to expect, this is a clearly a deeply personal project for Rucker, as it’s named for his late mother, a tribute to “the greatest woman I’ve ever known”.
In support of “Carolyn’s Boy”, the South Carolina-born singer has just announced a run of UK and Ireland tour dates for April / May 2024.
Rucker first achieved multi-Platinum status as lead singer / rhythm guitarist with the GRAMMY Award-winning Hootie & the Blowfish, who have sold more than 25 million albums worldwide, including their Double Diamond-certified (21x Platinum) debut “Cracked Rear View”, which remains among the top 10 best-selling studio albums of all time.
Since releasing his first Country album in 2008, Rucker has earned a whole new legion of fans with four No. 1 outings on the Billboard Country chart. His version of “Wagon Wheel” (now Diamond-certified 11x Platinum) stands as one of the top five best-selling Country songs of all time.
