BoomTown Saints Find Comfort Under the Neon in New Single ‘Dive Bar Heart’
Country duo BoomTown Saints pay homage to a familiar haunt in their new single "Dive Bar Heart."
Penned by Benjy Davis, Ryan Beaver and Ashley Ray, the polished country tune paints a smoky scene during a typical day in a neighborhood barroom.
"It's pretty crowded for a Tuesday / Parkin' lot's fillin' up out front," the duo sings, transporting listeners. "We can't all be coming here just for the price of beer / It's good to know I ain't the only one."
Members Chris Ramos and Ben Chism say the track immediately struck a chord with them, motivating them to put their own stamp on the radio-ready track.
"When our friend Ashley Ray first showed us this song, it immediately connected us to a place that we have in our hometown that we consider 'home,'" Ramos tells The Boot. "It's a place where everybody knows our names and is a safe place no matter what's happening in our lives. The nostalgia it summoned made it an undeniable song that we needed to record."
