A blast of pure summer fun, “Two For The Road” is all about embracing freedom and spur-of-the-moment decisions. It’s the ultimate summer road trip song! Bryan Ruby would know, he’s been in his truck nearly all summer long, driving figure eights around the country. From big city MLB stadiums to small-town ballparks, Ruby has already traveled 20,000 miles and has another 10,000 to go before he will return to Nashville this fall. The pro baseball player, who is winding down his sports career and beginning to launch a career in music, has spent the summer on a Stadium Tour, singing the National Anthem, throwing out the first pitch and performing “God Bless America” during the 7th Inning Stretch (sometimes in his uniform while playing in that night’s professional baseball game). The long road trip will be Ruby’s farewell tour of sorts in baseball before he turns his full focus toward Country Music. This country track is a rockin’ road trip jam built to be blasted over the car speakers with the windows down. “From 30A to the PCH, baby just point the way,” he sings. That willingness to pack a bag and go has been the bread and butter of Ruby’s baseball career, a journeyman effort that has taken him to play in seven different countries and 19 states in the US to date.
“Two For The Road is all about that free-spirited, fly by the seat of your pants feeling of fillin’ up the gas tank and driving into the unknown,” shared Bryan Ruby. He continued, “I had some killer musicians with me in the studio on this track. It was recorded at Pentavarit Studios in Nashville on May 28, the night Kenny Chesney was due to play in front of a record-breaking crowd over at Nissan Stadium. I was impressed with the work ethic of the guys, especially Nick Buda, who went right from my studio gig to Nissan Stadium to play for Kenny. It was an honor for a new artist like myself to get to go in the studio and learn from that crew of seasoned Nashville pros. I’d like to thank them for making me sound good.”
“We had one for your birthday
One when he broke your heart
One where we talked about being more than friends
Making a brand new start
We’ve been dancing around it
And drinking about it
You’re the only thing in this town
That makes me wanna stay
So whatcha think about runnin’ away?
Let’s be Two For The Road
Let’s get up and go
If we don’t hit the gas we ain’t never gonna know
Could be some real good years or we could go up in smoke
One way to find out
Let’s be Two For The Road”
