Ruby is no stranger to trying to combine love with music, as she has dated fellow band members in the past. She started playing violin at 2 years old and soon became the youngest fiddle player to perform at the Grand Ole Opry. She has gone on to play with the likes of Lady Gaga and Willie Nelson but has recently been focused on a solo career. Ruby admits she is a relationship-oriented girl though, so she comes to “Listen to Your Heart” looking once again to hit the right notes with someone as talented as herself.
