Darius Rucker Announces New Album 'Southern Style' Release

. (Radio.com) Following the success of his latest single "Homegrown Honey," Darius Rucker will release his new album Southern Style on March 31. Southern Style will be Rucker's fourth country album, the follow-up to 2013's True Believers.

In an interview with Radio.com last year, Rucker talked the new album and hinted at a few songs that could make the record. While Rucker said he doesn't think the album will be a party record, per se, there will definitely be some exuberance speckled throughout.

'We wanted to have a little more fun with this record," he said before talking about title track 'Southern Style,' a song he wrote with Rivers Rutherford. 'The opening line is 'Big blond hair too much makeup, high heel boots that lace-up, got two first names that came from her grandmas on both sides.' It's one of those country songs that I love."

Another song, 'I Sang" he also wrote with Rutherford and Tim James and is a song about being a singer. Admitting that he was never the best player on the team, it's about realizing he'll never play in the NFL, so he decided to sing instead. Meanwhile, 'Down Here" was written with longtime producer Frank Rogers and has the sentiment, 'I'm sure heaven's nice but tonight it ain't too bad down here."
