Darius Rucker has revealed the title of his upcoming album – Carolyn’s Boy – in tribute to his late mother.
“At the end of the day, I’m really still just Carolyn’s Boy,” the three-time Grammy Award winner said at an interview with NBC‘s “Today.”
He also released the meaningful cover image of the album, a portrait of his mother, Carolyn.
“I wanted to name the record Carolyn’s Boy because Mom never got to see any of my success. She died before any of this happened, so it’s just another homage to the greatest woman I’ve ever known,” Rucker told “Today” anchor Craig Melvin.
In the interview, Rucker also reflected on several major milestones in his career, including his 10-year anniversary as a member of the Grand Ole Opry and his recent 10th No. 1 single at country radio with “Beers And Sunshine.” His “Wagon Wheel” earned RIAA Diamond certification as an 11x Platinum hit.
“Coming into Nashville, to expect anything like that wasn’t even in the cards,” Rucker noted when asked about his reaction to achieving that level of success in country music. “Here we are now – 15, 16, years in – it’s been a fun run.”
Together with producer Frank Rogers, Rucker also shared an exclusive look at the isolated vocal track of “Wagon Wheel” in addition to previewing new music he is working on now for Carolyn’s Boy.
