“It’s funny because that song, we cut it and it kinda went away, because it was one of the first ones we cut,” lead singer Gary LeVox recalls.

“And then as we continued to keep going… A lot of times you put your ear to new stuff, and you’re like ‘That’s it! That’s it!’ And …read more

Comments Off on Darius Rucker delivers infectious new single, “For the First Time”

Capitol NashvilleWhen was the last time you did something for the first time? That’s the question Darius Rucker asks in his percussive new single, “For the First Time.”

The South Carolina native recalls how he came to write the tune. “As a songwriter, sometimes the smallest idea can elicit a feeling and then you have this daunting task of trying to relay that emotion and energy into a three-minute song,” he explains.

For Darius, that moment of inspiration came with the song’s opening line, “You say you’ve never danced to a dashboard singin’ R.E.M. under summer stars,” which name-checks the Athens, Georgia …read more
