Having previously teased the forthcoming project on NBC’S ‘TODAY’, Diamond-certified star Darius Rucker announces that his first solo album in six years, Carolyn’s Boy, is set for release October 6 via Snakefarm in the UK / UMG Nashville and available for preorder now. Brand new song ‘Have A Good Time’ is also available everywhere now as a further preview of the project alongside his latest single ‘Fires Don’t Start Themselves’ currently climbing the charts at US Country radio. “I wanted to name the record Carolyn’s Boy because Mom never got to see any of my success,” Rucker explained during the ‘TODAY’ interview. “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 honour her, 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 project along with his fan-favourite hits as part of the Citi Concert Series. Fans can also catch Rucker on his Starting Fires Tour, currently underway across the US, and he’ll bring the new music to his hometown of Charleston, S.C. during his personally-curated Riverfront Revival Music Festival as it for a second year on album release weekend (October 7 & 8). In celebration of the album announcement, Riverfront Revival is offering a limited allotment of 6-Pack GA Weekend Ticket Bundles, allowing fans to bundle and save $15 per pass while supplies last at RiverfrontRevival.com. Showcasing the best of country and rock music along with the finest in food, arts and culture the Lowcountry has to offer, the 2023 lineup includes Rucker, Turnpike Troubadours, Lainey Wilson, Band of Horses and more.
