Lady, I’m not a singer. I’m a professional announcer that happened to get Confederate Railroaded into this hatchetty crap…
Starting at 7 p.m. Sept. 16, “Baseball Tonight,” will open with a brand new song recorded by The Davisson Brothers Band and John Kruk, former Major League Baseball star and Baseball Tonight analyst.
Kruk approached Chris Davisson and Donnie Davisson about writing a new song for the show he had been on for eight years. The Davissons brought in the help of Phil O’Donnell, a Nashville songwriter who has No. 1 hits like Montgomery Gentry’s single “Back When I Knew It All” under his belt.
According to a news release from the band, when Kruk arrived in the studio, he stunned everyone with his vocal ability, which caused the final version of the new theme song to be a duet.
...The band, which blends country, blues, bluegrass and southern rock, also is responsible for the song West Virginia University plays before every home game kickoff. That song, “Here Come the Mountaineers,” was a collaboration with Oakland Raiders fullback and former WVU player Owen Schmitt. And a twist on the band’s hit song “Big City Hillbilly,” is played at West Virginia Power baseball games in Charleston when the team’s mascot, Chuck, rides onto the field.
