On Monday (Feb. 22), Darius Rucker also took to Twitter to talk about his song “Beers and Sunshine.” He used that post to thank his fans for helping propel the song to the very top of the country charts.

“#BeersandSunshine is #1 at country radio!! I can’t say think you enough to every single person who listened, played it, sang along and everything in between. THANK YOU!” Rucker posted on Twitter on Monday. Check out the tweet below.

“Beers and Sunshine” is a song about enjoying what makes life worth living. Given how difficult the past year has been for so many people, such a song might be needed now more than ever.

Check out these lyrics: “Beers and sunshine / Bonfires and summertime / Back porch nights in South Carolina / Ain’t nothing finer than me and my girl striking up a little lighter / ‘Cause everybody’s down in a world gone crazy / Don’t know how to fix it but I think maybe / Turn on the good times, turn off the TV / Yeah, the only BS I need is beers and sunshine.”

Song Reflects ‘Challenging’ 2020 Rucker Said

“It’s certainly been a challenging year. Like a lot of people, when I got home from being on the road last March and we parked the tour bus for the foreseeable future, we had no idea what our future would actually look like,” Darius Rucker said in the press release.

“I don’t have the answers for how we fix the complex issues that we’re facing in our country or in Country music, however, while we work through this time I think it’s important that we balance the heaviness by finding the silver lining, where we can really enjoy the simple joys this song talks about like time spent together with friends and family.”

According to a press release by Universal Music Group Nashville, “Beers and Sunshine” is the tenth No. 1 hit of Darius Rucker’s career. Rucker wrote the song alongside Ross Copperman, J.T. Harding, and Josh Osborne. The popular singer is also reportedly working on a new album.
