Sugar In The Gas Tank- “Bye”

I recently came across one of my new favorite bands in town, Sugar In The Gas Tank. Their name struck me from the second I saw their Instagram page and then I found myself singing their song, “Bye”, in my head all day long.  It’s the kind of song I feel like you’d hear in a movie at the end when a person realizes he made the right decision. They’re a newer band to the scene in Nashville and if this song is a sign of what’s to come, when shows come back, I feel like these boys will be selling out clubs for sure. Check out “Bye” below.
