Darius Rucker is back!
Ok, the country star never really left. He just seemed to take a little time getting his third country album complete. Darius has been busy in 2012 recording new music, touring and he even did a song with Lionel Ritchie on the successful Tuskegee record. So it’s been a good year for Darius, but it’s been over a year since he released a new single to radio.
That’s why the release of True Believers is one of the most anticipated moves from a country star this year. Check out the new single.
True Believers – Darius Rucker
Darius has made it no secret that he’s looking to make music that gets played on the radio. I can respect that attitude. Darius wants to have a large group of fans that love his music and he sticks with a basic song formula.
True Believers is another love song in a long line of love songs from Darius. The melody is happy and up beat. The lyrics are positive and full of good emotion. It’s a song I’m sure people will smile for when they hear it on the radio. It’s always welcoming to have a little positive in the country world and that’s one thing Darius brings to the table.
So all in all the song is pretty standard from the love song and Darius Rucker song perspetive, but I think that’s a good thing. It’s something a little new, a little fresh. People are going to respond well to it when it comes on the radio. The DJs are going to eat this thing up because it’s safe and still has a good melody. It’s going to be a big hit. That’s not the prediction of the century. It’s just good country music and that’s what you expect from Darius.
