Darius Rucker has a brand new single fans will love: “For the First Time” is perfect for Rucker’s unique sound. This song comes just a few months after he reached number 1 on the charts for his last single, “If I Told You.”

Darius Rucker co-wrote “For The First Time” with Travis Hill and Derek George. It will be part of his upcoming 5th album, which he plans to release sometime this year. There is no word yet regarding the date of that release.

“For The First Time” is a song with an uplifting beat and a very catchy tune. It’s a fun song and a great sound for summer. You can hear it for yourself below:

Lyrics like “when was the last time you did something for the first time” challenges listeners to be spontaneous and take chances. With Darius behind the wheel, we are almost guaranteed to have a great time in any adventure we decide to take.

The new song is easy on the ears and a great dance tune. You can start expecting to hear it in dancehalls and honkey tonks. If you love it as much as we do, it is available for download through iTunes. While you are at it, make sure you check out some of Darius’s other great music as well.

Darius Rucker may say he hasn’t left his Hootie and the Blowfish days behind him, but he’s definitely proving he has what it takes to make it in the world of country music. If he keeps pumping out great songs like this, he won’t ever have to return to his alternate persona again.

For fans who want to see Darius live, you will need to get moving. He has just nine shows left this summer, and his current tour will wrap up in August. However, he is slated to play at the Kicks 101.5 Country Fair in Alpharetta, GA in September. You can check out the full tour dates on his website.
