The Song Remembers When: Darius Rucker – “Beers And Sunshine”

We take you behind the scenes and explore the making of one of our favorite tunes with The Song Remembers When…


It was last summer, August to be exact, when Darius Rucker released what would become his 9th career Billboard Country Airplay number one, “Beers and Sunshine.” Darius wrote the song with Ross Copperman, JT Harding, and Josh Osborne over Zoom during the pandemic.

Darius remembers that when they were trying to find something to write, they all agreed that there might be some serious songs coming out of what everyone was going through.  But, for Darius, he doesn’t like to dwell on what he can’t fix. So, he thought that they needed to write something upbeat and happy. He said that he knew when they got that line, “The only BS I need is beers and sunshine,” they had something.

The song topped the chart in February 2021. Look for this one to be featured on Darius’ upcoming album.
