Watch Darius Rucker Perform Brand-New Single, “Beers and Sunshine,” on the Grand Ole Opry

The Grand Ole Opry tallied its 4,937th consecutive Saturday night broadcast on Aug. 15 with a showcase featuring a pair of country music’s biggest stars: Luke Bryan and Darius Rucker.

Darius performed a number of his fan-favorite tunes, as well as his brand-new single, “Beers and Sunshine.”

Penned by Darius, Ross Copperman, J.T. Harding and Josh Osborne, “Beers and Sunshine” is Darius’ first new music since his 2017 album, When Was the Last Time.

The light new tune features Darius crooning the crafty chorus: “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.”

“It’s certainly been a hard year so far with a lot of heaviness around us constantly,” say Darius. “Like it says in the song, I don’t know how we fix any of these big, real issues that we’re facing, but while we work through this time I think it’s important that we find the silver lining where we can really enjoy the little moments and the simple joys of time spent together with friends and family.”
