Bryan Ruby "The Standouts (Heroes Version)" featuring Ty Herndon Song Review

In 2022, singer/songwriter, Bryan Ruby released his hit single, “The Standouts.” Now, Ruby revisits this song with the help of country singer Ty Herndon, releasing “The Standouts (Heroes Version).” Ruby is one to watch in the country music industry and continues to break new ground with his impeccable style and songwriting ability.

"The Standouts" is a testament to Ruby's exceptional songwriting abilities. The lyrics delve deep into themes of resilience, self-discovery, and embracing one's uniqueness. Ruby's introspective and relatable storytelling allows listeners to connect on a profound level, as he explores the struggles and triumphs that shape our lives. Ruby sings, “Here’s to the standouts / The picked on and the pushed down / We are who we are / And we have the heart / To stick out from the crowd / The way we’re living / Might make us different / But if no one stood up / Where would we be now? / Here’s to the standouts.”


Ruby is not just a trailblazer when it comes to music. The Pennsylvania native is between being one of the most promising up-and-coming artists and being the only active professional baseball player to be openly gay. Ruby shows his courage through his work. His songwriting is undeniably good and Herndon’s feature only brings this track closer to perfection.
