Troy Ramey Releases Country-Driven Anthem “Pick Up Truck”

Troy Ramey’s latest single, “Pick Up Truck,” is a masterful blend of heartfelt storytelling and evocative melodies, encapsulating the joy and freedom of summer drives. Known for his soul-stirring voice and poignant lyrics, Ramey has transformed a playful jest into a poignant anthem that speaks to the universal pleasure of cruising with the windows down and the music up.

Co-written with his long-time friend Johnny Gates, “Pick Up Truck” began in 2017 as a light-hearted exploration of classic country themes. Reflecting on the genesis of the song, Ramey shares, “Johnny suggested years ago that I should consider writing country music. I jokingly thought, ‘OK, this has to be about a truck, whiskey, beer, a girl, or all of those things.’ But as I played around on the guitar, the lyrics ‘when you hear my song, turn it up, sounds better in a pickup truck’ came to mind. It stopped being a joke and became about one of my favorite things to do.”

Ramey’s creative process often involves driving with his music turned up, a ritual that fuels his inspiration and helps refine his work. “It helps me think, gets me excited, or helps me identify things I want to change,” he explains. This sentiment of finding solace and creativity on the open road is beautifully captured in “Pick Up Truck,” a song that resonates with anyone who has ever felt the liberating spirit of the open road.

With a career marked by his profound ability to connect with audiences, Troy Ramey continues to solidify his place in the music industry. His journey from a musically rich household and initial pursuit of athletics to healing through music after the tragic loss of his father has shaped his authentic and emotionally powerful sound. His dedication has earned him over 25 million streams on Spotify and an underground viral hit with “Woman,” a song written for his wife that has touched countless newlyweds.

Ramey’s debut LP, “All I Had,” released as a series of singles since the fall of 2023, has garnered significant attention, with anticipation building for its full release in the fall of 2024. His exceptional talent was further recognized on Season 12 of NBC’s The Voice, where he was a Top 12 finalist, receiving high praise from celebrity judges like Alicia Keys and even bringing Celine Dion to tears.

“Pick Up Truck” is a testament to Troy Ramey’s artistry and his ability to transform a simple idea into a universal anthem. As he continues to pave his own way in the industry with passion and sincerity, Ramey’s music serves as a reminder that the best songs come from the heart.
