  • Darius Rucker penned this love song with Deric Ruttan and Jonathan Singleton for his Southern Style album. "There was a point with this record when we were getting it all together and I just thought, 'Man, there are all these songs I've got to listen to. Let me go listen again,'" he recalled to "I went back in, got into my studio at my house and just got embedded in these songs again."

    "I remember listening to what we had already done and the first thing I thought, 'Need You More is on the record. I don't care what I pull off, what I do,'" he continued "That song. The vivid imagery with that song. I love it. When I listen back to it I'm so proud of that tune. The payoff is so worth it."
