If you saw Chris Stapleton live last fall, the song was part of his set list.  Hear the full song tomorrow in the noon hour on Q106.5

Just days after announcing his split from his wife of 20 years, Darius Rucker shares that he is working on a new album that just might be his most personal yet.

"We don’t have a date yet (for release), but I'm more than halfway done with my album," Hootie told Taste of Country Nights. "That's the new norm, just popping out EPs, but I'm still old and I want to make an album."


"This record, so far, has been so personal," he admits. "I'm not done with what I want to say yet."

"I've been writing a lot of stuff," Rucker says. "Jimmie (Allen) and I wrote a really great song that I played on the (Grand Ole) Opry the other night. It’s called 'What I Didn’t Know I Was Missing.' It’s a really cool tune that means a lot to me."

Now that Thomas Rhett has gotten more downtime with his family over the past few months, he predicts that it will take a while for his daughters to get used to his touring lifestyle again when everything shifts back to normal.

In a recent interview with Q106.5 and CMT Radio’s Cody Alan, Rhett spoke of the reactions he could face from his three little girls — 6-month-old Lennon Love, 3-year-old Ada James and 4-year-old Willa Gray — after things settle down enough to allow him back on the road.

“Now that I’m here 24/7 during the week they’re gonna be like, 'What? Do you work? You have a job?' And so it’ll be different.”

He and his brood have also been making plenty of memories at home, admitting he’s grown fond of one particular Disney movie after having rewatched it several times with his little princesses.

"I've seen Frozen 2, not exaggerating, probably 350 times since February," he said. "I like the movie now, I've seen it so much "
June 3rd 2021.  Center Point Road tour resumes in Gilford, New Hampshire. June 4th too.
