Darius Rucker and The Band Perry released albums on the same day, and now they’re appearing on the same show, joining host Nan Kelley on this weekend’s edition of GAC’s Top 20 Country Countdown.

The Band Perry’s self-titled debut album came out on Tuesday, featuring the group’s first Top 20 hit, “Hip To My Heart,” as well as its current ballad, “If I Die Young,” which has already become the trio’s first gold single. “If I Die Young” is No. 15 on this week’s Top 20.

The new Darius album, Charleston, SC 1966, was also released on Tuesday, and it contains a successful single of its own, “Come Back Song.” If you saw the title before you actually heard the song, you might have thought it was about a veteran musician’s career. Which means Darius and his co-writers, Casey Beathard and Chris Stapleton, succeeded in their attempts to twist the meaning.

“That was the idea,” he says. “I wrote it with two really good friends, and that was the point. It was the last song we wrote for the record. We didn’t think about it — we were writing the song relationship-wise, but then we started thinkin’ about it, it was a pretty good play on words.”
