“Between music and baseball, I spend most of the year on the road, so getting to come home for Christmas is always a high point. I wanted to paint that picture with this song,” said Ruby.
In 2021, the trailblazing professional baseball player and rising country music artist became the only active professional baseball player to come out as gay, and his story was featured on the front page of USA Today and in hundreds of media outlets around the world.
As a songwriter, Ruby has penned songs that have appeared on the Texas Country Top 50 chart and the iTunes Country Top 25, and songs he has written have been featured on both Huffington Post and in People Magazine. As an artist, he won Season 7 of the talent-search competition Nashville Rising Song, and is preparing for the release of his upcoming debut EP due out in 2023.
Bryan’s first single, “Left Field,” was featured on The TODAY Show and added to rotation on SiriusXM Country Pride, as well as the Academy of Country Music’s Ultimate Pride Playlist. He is currently on a Stadium Tour singing the National Anthem and performing pregame and postgame concerts at ballparks around the country.
