Album BackgroundEdit

News about Darius Rucker working on his fourth country release was first announced in August 2014. Sixty songs were written for the album, then with 12 to 15 of them being cut for the record.

Once again, Rucker worked with record producer, Frank Rogers on the album. On working with Rogers, Rucker says, "I can't go in to record with the attitude that I want to sound different. It's all about the songs for me. I want great songs. And if we have great songs, then Frank is the genius and does what he does."

When Rucker was visiting "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" on January 12, 2015, he announced that his new album would be called "Southern Style" as well as the release date, and tour to support the album.

Chart PerformanceEdit

"Southern Style" debuted at #1 on Billboard's Top Country Albums, making it Rucker's fourth number-one album on the chart. It also debuted on the Billboard 200 at #7, with 52,000 copies sold in the U.S. for the week.

As of September 2016, the album has sold 199,000 copies in the United States.

Critical ReceptionEdit

Stephen Thomas Erlewine of Allmusic wrote that Rucker "has found a way to ease his amiable roots rock onto the country charts without ever copping to contemporary country trends."
