Gary Brewer honored by Louisville Slugger

Finley, Gary , Wayne, and Mason Brewer at the Louisville Slugger Museum in Louisville, KYGary Brewer & the Kentucky Ramblers were presented with a custom, personalized baseball bat last Friday morning at the company headquarters in Louisville, KY. Brewer, his dad Finley, and his two sons, Wayne and Mason, accepted the bat from Louisville Slugger Museum CEO, Rick Redman, as a token of the company’s appreciation for the band showing to the Louisville Slugger in their recent music video, The Derby City Flash.

The song is meant as a tongue-in-cheek, thumbnail bio of Gary, and the band produced a clever music video to accompany the track. It includes vignettes of famous Louisvillians, and vignettes of sights about town, and the Brewer family farm.

Hit song… get it?

Here’s video they captured of the presentation…
