Sun Records‘ Chad Michael Murray Talks Recording Darius Rucker

"It's Perfect and It's Magic."

After years of playing heartthrob roles on TV shows like One Tree Hill and Gilmore Girls and movies like A Cinderella Story and Freaky Friday, Chad Michael Murray has a lot of experience with people “fangirling” over him.

However, on the set of CMT’s Sun Records, the tables were turned.

“I was just fangirling out over Darius Rucker,” Murray joked, recalling the days he spent on set filming scenes where his character, Sun Records founder Sam Phillips, met with and recorded Johnny Bragg (portrayed by Rucker) and the Prisonaires.

“How many people get to sit in there and record Darius Rucker? Yeah, he’s playing Johnny Bragg, but he’s an unbelievably talented musician, and he’s singing live every take, and every single take, it’s perfect and it’s magic. It was just a really special moment,” reminisced Murray.
