Darius Rucker has announced that his first solo album in six years, Carolyn’s Boy, is set for release on October 6 via UMG Nashville.
The diamond-certified star also shared his brand new song “Have A Good Time”.
Rucker’s latest single “Fires Don’t Start Themselves” is currently climbing the charts at country radio.
“I wanted to name the record Carolyn’s Boy because Mom never got to see any of my success,” Rucker explained during an interview on NBC‘s “Today.” “She died before any of this happened, so it’s just another homage to the greatest woman I’ve ever known.”
When asked why now is the right time to honor his mother, Rucker was reflective, conceding, “Years ago, I wasn’t really sure what my place in Country music was and I was trying to find it. Now I have found it – I know – and I think it’s time to give that record.”
Rucker will return to “Today” on September 1 to perform new songs off the upcoming project along with his fan-favorite hits as part of the Citi Concert Series.
He will bring the new music to his hometown of Charleston, South Carolina, during his personally-curated Riverfront Revival Music Festival on album release weekend – October 7 and 8.
