Darius Rucker just released his new album, True Believers. Ever since he embarked on his growing country solo adventure, Darius has been making waves, headlines and most important of it all, country music. This is his third studio album.

“Every time I make a record, it’s make or break time,” Darius tells Rolling Stone magazine. “I hope I always have that mentality – that’s what keeps me fired up. I’ve got to solidify my place in Nashville, and to do that I’ve got to keep making records that people want to listen to.”

Among the tracks, there’s one in particular I want to point out. Darius actually has a duet with the talented and beautiful Mallary Hope. The Cohutta songstress, called a powerhouse vocalist by Rolling Stone (we couldn’t agree more), is featured on the seventh track I Will Love You Still. It’s a beautiful song and very heavily recommended. Personally, I’d recommend the entire album.

Darius also has a collaboration with Lady Antebellum for the harmony for the second single of the album, a rendition of Wagon Wheel,Old Crow Medicine Show’s signature song co-written by Bob Dylan.
