Darius Ruckers Hits No. 1 With 'If I Told You"


Darius Rucker has hit number one on the country charts with "If I Told You." The track marks Rucker's seventh chart topper on the country airplay charts and his first since 2013's "Wagon Wheel."

"I have believed in this song so much, ever since I first heard the work tape from the writers of the song, Ross Copperman, Shane McAnally and Jon Nite," Rucker tells Billboard. "It feels awesome to watch a song you believe in so much have this kind of reach and connection. That feeling never gets old. It's also happening as I'm finishing my [next] studio album, so to have this kind of support at country radio and have a No. 1 off the album before it's even released this fall is pretty humbling."

"I wasn't a fan of the song initially, but it grew on me," acknowledges KKBQ Houston program director Johnny Chiang. "It took a while for it to research with listeners as well. But once it took off, it really took off. Of late, it's been a top tester."
