Grammy-winning artist Darius Rucker has officially announced the release date of his first solo album in six years, titled “Carolyn’s Boy.”
Taking to social media on a Friday morning, Rucker personally shared the exciting news that his new project will be available on October 6, with a 14-song track list.
But this album is more than just another project for the talented musician; it holds a deeply sentimental significance. Rucker disclosed that “Carolyn’s Boy” will serve as a touching tribute to his late mother, Carolyn.
“Years ago, I wasn’t really sure what my place in Country Music was and I was trying to find it, Rucker admitted. “Now I’ve found it – I know – and I think it’s time to give you all that record. ‘Carolyn’s Boy’, named after the greatest woman I’ve ever known, my mom, is out October 6th, 2023!”
‘Carolyn’s Boy’ presents a collection of 14 tracks, 11 co-written by Rucker himself. The album has contributions from highly sought-after Nashville songwriters like Josh Osborne, Ross Copperman, Ben Hayslip, HARDY, and several others. Notably, Ed Sheeran has also lent his songwriting skills to the project.
