Darius Rucker Releases ‘Homegrown Honey’ Single
Darius Rucker has released the debut single, 'Homegrown Honey,' from his upcoming new album. Written by Rucker, along with Lady Antebellum's Charles Kelley and hit tunesmith Nathan Chapman, the song is an infectious, uptempo tune about a country girl turning heads in a city bar.
With lines like "I’ll bet the boys at home can’t leave you alone / You little homegrown honey, honey, honey / You’re so money, money, money / You got a country road Carolina soul / Baby you’re just so homegrown," sung to a rocking beat, the South Carolina native admits it's a departure from what fans have come to expect from him.
"It's a little different for me. It's not one of those family songs -- it's really a country party song," he tells Rolling Stone Country. "It's talking about some country girl who lives in New York City. It's got hooks galore."
The upcoming record will be his fourth release as a solo country artist. His first three albums, 'Learn to Live,' 'Charleston, SC 1966' and 'True Believers,' all soared to the top of the charts and produced six No. 1 hits, including the multi-platinum 'Wagon Wheel.'
