Three-time GRAMMY Award-winner Darius Rucker is once again captivating audiences with what Billboard praises as “one of the most distinctive voices of country’s modern era” as he further previews his highly anticipated new album, Carolyn’s Boywith today’s release of feel-good song “Southern Comfort.” Listen HERE and preorder the album out Oct. 6 HERE.

 

Written by Chris LaCorte (“Ain’t That Some,” “Blue Tacoma”), Matt Rogers (“‘Til You Can’t,” “Freedom Was a Highway”) and Josh Osborne (“Never Wanted to Be That Girl,” “Body Like a Back Road”), the heartfelt homage to the South captures the essence of a region deeply rooted in tradition, hospitality and the joy of shared moments:

 

        That gentle breeze makes me think I’m three sheets to the wind 

        When the fireflies light me up right makes the whole world spin 

        If sunsets were like whiskey, man, I’d be seeing double 

        Ain’t nothing in this bottle gets me drunk as Southern Comfort

 

Today’s release joins current single “Fires Don’t Start Themselves” as well as No. 1 hit “Beers And Sunshine,” recent release “Have A Good Time” in previewing his first solo project in six years, Carolyn’s Boy, named for his late mother as an “homage to the greatest woman I’ve ever known.”
