When he took the stage to accept the Country Music Association’s “New Artist of the Year” award in November of 2009, [lastfm]Darius Rucker[/lastfm] was already well on his way to becoming an established country artist. His 2008 album Learn To Live hit #1 on the US country charts and was certified platinum, and had spawned three #1 hit singles, the biggest of which is his song “Alright.” Not one to take his success for granted, Rucker set about writing a follow-up album, knowing he had to dig deep and create something worthy of the success he’d begun to enjoy. The result is this week’s new release, the semi-autobiographical Charleston, SC 1966, which included a cameo by friend [lastfm]Brad Paisley[/lastfm].
[lastfm]Darius Rucker[/lastfm]‘s new single is called “Come Back Song” – check out the brand-new video that just hit Vevo.com:
