Darius Rucker is coming off a big number one hit. It had been a couple years since he reached the top. But he has been one of the most consistent hitmakers of the last decade.
That’s kind of shocking in itself. It was 2008 when Darius made the switch over to country music. He shot right to the top with his first couple singles and really hasn’t looked back.
That’s pretty impressive for a guy with garage band roots that had incredible success in the pop world. Don’t act like you didn’t have the Cracked Rear View CD back in 1995.
Anyway, here is the brand new single from Darius Rucker.
For The First Time – Darius Rucker
In a few ways Darius Rucker and Brad Paisley are similar. They both have a knack for writing and recording really radio-friendly country songs. And I like that. I like artists that aren’t afraid to make music that a lot of listeners love.
Brad’s latest single is a little play on words about how there’s a last time for everything. And this one from Darius is a little play on words getting you thinking about the last time you did something for the first time.
That’s an interesting thought experiment.
We do most things for the first time when we’re growing up. But as we get older we have naturally experienced a lot and we kind of slow down. But there are still so many things we could experience for the first time.
Darius blends this all with a great melody and it should be another hit. I really like this one.
