Darius Rucker Scores Another No. 1 With ‘This’
Darius Rucker's 'This' takes over the top of both the Country Aircheck/Mediabase and Billboard country charts this week. Kenny Chesney's 'Live a Little' is No. 2 on both charts, followed by Miranda Lambert's 'Heart Like Mine' in third place.
The chart-topping single is Darius' fifth No. 1 country hit, and the second from his latest solo album, 'Charleston, SC 1966.' Darius co-wrote the tune with producer Frank Rogers and Kara DioGuardi (songwriter and former 'American Idol' judge), and the singer is extremely passionate about every single component of the chart-topper.
"I love everything about it. I love the danceability of the song," says Darius. "I love the words to the song. I love the sing-a-long chorus, and then you get the payoff : 'All that stuff, all that stuff led me right here.'"
Darius will obviously perform 'This' when he takes to the stage in New York City for an intimate benefit show at the Housing Works Bookstore Café on April 26. Click here to check out the rest of Darius' tour dates.
