Darius Rucker starts off his brand-new song asking, “When was the last time you did something for the first time?” That lyrical challenge has inspired him to take a few chances and try several things he’s never done before. Rare Country’s Hunter Kelly got to go along with him as he experienced his first-ever psychic reading, and it was quite the eye-opening experience. Here’s Hunter’s firsthand account of the experience.

Before we got started, Darius confessed, “I’ve never done this before … I’m very scared and excited. So, here we go.”

First up, our psychic, Jennifer, had Darius fold his hands and make two private wishes to himself. She then had him hold out his hands, and that’s when the craziness began. Just look at Darius’s face as she starts to tell him that he needs a little break from home and work, but she envisions the months of October and November will be promising for him.

She tells him, “It’s going to be more time-consuming, putting more energy into work. I envision success ahead of you.”

That’s really good news, since Darius’s new album, “When Was the Last Time,” will be released Oct. 20! You can pre-order the album here.

As for his family, Jennifer tells Darius his three kids are fine, but two of them need guidance and support right now. She also said she felt a presence watching over him. It was clear from his facial expressions that Darius knew exactly what she was talking about there.

I was up next, and I have to admit Jennifer had me pegged quickly when she said I don’t like to answer to other people, and I like to be in control of my emotions. She did say my work would be a success, so that’s promising.  She also said I needed to spend more time around water, which is a little nuts since I had just returned from a week at the beach when we sat down for this session. This woman is onto something, and I’m now ready to book my next week on the water, ASAP!

After we got out of the session, Darius said Jennifer was spot-on with his reading. I just said, “There’s more out there!”

While you’re waiting for Darius Rucker’s new album, “When Was the Last Time,” to drop on Oct. 20, check out his brand-new hit from that project, “For the First Time.” You can see a live performance of that track here.

The new release also includes Darius’s latest No. 1 hit, “If I Told You.”
