Watch: Darius Rucker’s “Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It”


Many do not realize how awesome Darius Rucker has become cementing his way through our country hearts and by the word awesome, we mean utmost awesomeness and not just a mediocre success of those one hit wonders. In one of his monster hits called ‘Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It.’ Rucker did not only sing his heart out to climb the charts but also set a new record for African-American singers trying to break into the country music scene. His song, ‘Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It,’ set a record for Rucker to be the first African-American artist to chart a number one country hit since Charley Pride’s ‘Night Games’ in 1983.

Don’t Think I Don’t Think About It, Darius Rucker

In the said song with the music video accompaniment, Darius Rucker sings in the middle of a field while the narrative of this song plays out. It tells about a bittersweet ballad of a man who left his former lover and tells about could have beens of their love story.

In an interview with The Boot, Darius Rucker recalled about the time he heard of his song on a radio:

“I was in Charleston, S.C., in my car driving to the golf course by myself. We were just starting to service the song on the radio stations. It was one of those things they weren’t playing it. ‘Here’s a new song by Darius Rucker,’ it was one of those introductions. ‘Here’s a new song by Darius Rucker, let’s see what it sounds like.’ [Laughs] It comes on, and I’ll just never forget how great ‘Don’t Think’ sounded on the radio! The first time I heard it on the radio, I was thinking, ‘Man, the production on that song… that song is made for the radio.’

I felt like: here we go! It felt great because I was listening to the radio, and I felt like it sounded like it was supposed to be right there. Here I am, the pop guy coming over and trying to tell everybody how much I love country, and I want to make a country record. Here I’m listening to the radio where Toby Keith is playing and Brad Paisley is playing and my song comes on, and it sounds like it’s supposed to be right there. I felt like, ‘Wow, that’s awesome!’ To say I was filled with pride is an understatement. I was happy because I feel like we picked the right single. It sounded great, and it sounded like it should be on country radio.”
