“Country music is as pure as it gets when it comes to emotion, but that is just one side of the genre; the heart. The other side is the one that is able to let go, grab a beer and have some fun. Ricky Dean showcases both sides of his Country world with a pair of tracks that are for fans of Trace Adkins and Toby Keith. When You Call Me Daddy is the typical country song; a story. It tells the tale of a man and his child, the child ultimately growing up and the feelings the father now and will always have. It touches the heart of anyone who has ever been a parent and those who will one day be. Two Steps On The Bar is on the other side of the spectrum. It is a faster song that is for the bar, which is obvious from the title. This is the one you spend a quarter on in the jukebox to take a dull evening to a new level of fun. Ricky Dean is not one sided, he knows how to create songs that both entertain the heart and the dance floor.”
