Darius Rucker Set to Release ‘If I Told You’

Darius Rucker knows that in order to move people, there has to be vulnerability and authenticity in the message. Rucker first demonstrated his ability to expose that underlying raw emotion with the first of his seven No. 1’s, “Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It” from his Platinum Learn To Live and most recently in “So I Sang” from Southern Style. With our first taste of new music in “If I Told You,” Rucker unveils a heartfelt new track worldwide today on iHeart Radio. Expected to be the first cut from his fifth major label country album for Capitol Records Nashville, the song is also available today on streaming and digital retail services.

“I always tell people, the first time I heard [the Black Crowes’] ‘She Talks To Angels,’ those lyrics did something to me. I probably requested that song eight times at different bars in Columbia, S.C. before going home, putting on Bonnie Raitt’s Home Plate, and trying to write ‘She Talks To Angels’ for Bonnie Raitt. ‘Let Her Cry’ just poured out,” shares Rucker. “For me, ‘If I Told You,’ inspired me like ‘Angels’ as it’s not a song I wrote, but as a songwriter I would not change a line as it moves me to want to not only sing along but also as a songwriter it inspires a new perspective.”

In his inaugural project with producer Ross Copperman, “If I Told You” also marks the first time Rucker has worked with Copperman’s co-writers on the single, Jon Nite and Shane McAnally.

“What I love about each album is the opportunity to expand on what we’ve done in the past—to push myself and the band creatively, vocally and lyrically,” adds Rucker. “At the end of the day, I’m a fan of great stories and great songs. With ‘Wagon Wheel’ I loved the visual it painted and it’s a song I can truly say I look forward to performing every night. With ‘If I Told You,’ I can’t wait to share in that vulnerability with the fans from the stage night-after-night.”

Brett Eldredge Gives Thomas Rhett a Little Lesson on Snapchat

Brett Eldredge takes full responsibility for unleashing his pal Thomas Rhett on the Snapchat world, and says he loves how the social media app lets him show fans his own “wacky, weird” side too.

Brett admits that Thomas is “a funny guy” but after talking him into downloading the app, Brett says the “Happy Man” singer started off a little timid.

“At first … he was slowly getting into it and … having other people film for him,” Brett told ABC Radio. “I’m like ‘Dude, just do your point of view. Show what’s going on all around you and just be the fun person that you are.’ I think he’s got it down pretty good now. He’s doing a great job.”

Meanwhile, Brett remains the Snapchat master, and says,

“I’m so random, and I get tired of just typing stuff. I really want to share the journey and the wacky, weird way I see the world. So I get to do that on Snapchat.”
