Darius Rucker detailed his upcoming untitled album with Page Six and says it’s an album full of songs, “that are pretty true, pretty vulnerable, pretty deep, me saying exactly how I feel…”. In July of 2020 Darius revealed he and his wife of 20 years were divorcing and that coupled with the coronavirus pandemic, it left a lot of time for reflection and writing.
“There’s a song called ’Never Been Over’ I wrote with John Osborne, from Brothers Osborne. “It’s just one of those songs where we really sat down and wrote how I felt.”
Rucker’s album is due to be released in February 2022 shortly before his “Darius Rucker Live Tour.” Did you divorce during the pandemic? What added pressures did it bring? What helped your recover?
