"Beers and Sunshine" is a song co-written and recorded by American country music artist Darius Rucker. It was released on August 6, 2020, as the intended lead single from his forthcoming sixth country studio album.[1]

Rucker performed the song live at the 54th Annual Country Music Association Awards, which he co-hosted with Reba McEntire.[2] The music video premiered on November 5, 2020.[3]


Rucker co-wrote the track over video chat with Ross Copperman, J.T. Harding, and Josh Osborne. Copperman also produced the track.[4] The song's title is a play on words for "B.S." which is typically shorthand for bullshit, but Rucker's lyrics suggest "the only B.S. [he] need[s] is beers and sunshine."[5]

Chart performance[]

The song debuted at No. 24 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart, making it Rucker's highest debut to date, surpassing the No. 26 start for "True Believers" in 2012.[6] It later became Rucker's ninth Country Airplay number one, reaching the top in the issue dated February 27, 2021, and his first since “For the First Time” in 2018. [7] It also debuted at No. 25 on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart.[8]
