There’s an integrity to Ben Rue: it’s a quality that’s central to his character and his career. And perhaps it’s his natural sincerity, together with a passion for making lyrically meaningful music, that’s made Rue’s Arista Nashville debut single, "I Can’t Wait (Be My Wife)," such a compelling introduction. Produced by Kyle Lehning (best known for his longtime work with Randy Travis) and released in the spring of 2014, the song immediately began turning heads in the industry, with early excitement at radio and attention from music trades like Billboard and All Access, which called the song "positively irresistible," predicting it as "the wedding song for summer 2014." Rue came to Nashville by way of small-town Silverton, OR, where he grew up the youngest of three brothers on his family’s 2000-acre grass seed farm. Driving a combine since he was 11, Rue wasn’t one to shy from the hard work of the farm, but found himself writing songs and creating his own music as he worked.
