Darius released his first Christmas album, Home For The Holidays, today, October 27. Produced by Frank Rogers, the 12-track album includes his unique spin on holiday classics such as “Winter Wonderland,” “I’ll Be Home For Christmas,” and “Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow,” as well as two original songs, “Candy Cane Christmas” and “What God Wants For Christmas,” that he co-wrote. Among the album’s highlights is the seasonal favorite, “Baby, It’s Cold Outside,” featuring special guest Sheryl Crow.
“We wanted to make one of those records that a fan of R&B music would put it on and go, ‘That’s a good Christmas record!’ And a fan of Country music would put it on and go, ‘That’s a good Christmas record,’” says Darius. “And a fan of pop music would put it on and go, ‘That’s a pretty cool Christmas record!’ I’m hoping it’s one of those records that people just love. I want fans to love it and play it for their kids. I’m hoping that there’s some kid who is two years old today, and when he’s 14 and they ask him what reminds him of Christmas, he says, ‘The Darius Rucker Christmas record.’ That would be awesome!”
