Darius Rucker Gets Lucky With Choreplay

When I love a new country artist's first album, I get really nervous when the second one's released. What if it's not as good as the first? What if he just was a one-album wonder? All that worry for nothing. Darius Rucker's new one, Charleston, SC 1966, is every bit as outstanding as his Nashville debut. He wrote so many of the songs on this one with my favorite songwriters. The current single, "Come Back Song," was written with Casey Beathard, the guy behind Kenny Chesney's "The Boys of Fall." But if I had to pick an absolute favorite, it would be the one called "Might Get Lucky." Or, what I'm calling it in my mind, The Choreplay Song. Rucker wrote it with Radney Foster and Jay Clementi. Since it was written by three men, I have to applaud them for their candor about foreplay. The kind of foreplay only a woman could appreciate. This song is full of advice for men who may want some later that night: chase the kids, put away the dishes, fix the screen door and basically treat her right in the daylight. Hot, hot, hot and smoking hot. There hasn't been a good honest country song about this since Garth Brooks' "Somewhere Other Than the Night" in 1993. If Rucker's song teaches even one guy how to properly prepare for a night of passion, it's worth it. On behalf of women everywhere, I thank you Darius Rucker.
