It’s been an interesting year or so for Darius Rucker. He kicked of his last album, Souther Style, with a big hit in Homegrown Honey. Then the title track came out and it seemed like it would be a hit, but it kind of hung out around the top 30 and then stalled out.
Usually when that happens they move on to another single from the album. There were some good options, but things just got quiet from Darius for a few months until now… He’s back with a new single from an upcoming album.
If I Told You – Darius Rucker
There is some passion and emotion with this song. Darius has had songs like this one, but he’s maybe best known for his more light hearted songs about life and love and all those good things. This song is more of a guy that’s on the edge of baring his sole and he’s wondering if it will all backfire on him.
The guy is wondering if he can tell the woman he cares are about all the things from his past. He knows that he needs to tell her everything for the chance of success in the relationship. But he knows that it’s a risk and that she might turn the other way and run.
But he’s hoping that she’ll be able to stick with him because she loves him and because she knows that he loves her more than anything.
I like this song. I think it’s a great song for country radio right now. And Darius does a great job with it. I’m curious to see how this one does. I’m rooting for it to do well.
