As a young marketing major at the University of Arkansas, Ben Rector found an outlet from the monotony of charts and graphs in crafting pop songs on an acoustic guitar. Eight years later and much to the surprise of his Statistics professor, Ben has six albums under his belt including his latest release, Brand New. The album cover features Ben gliding by on a bicycle with shades on, sneakers with no socks, and a carefree grin. The songs are just as lighthearted and fun, and will leave you wondering if this guy has ever had a bad day in his life.
