"Soon as You Can"
When 2006's Long Trip Alone was released, it was Bentley's first LP as a married man – he and girlfriend Cassidy eloped right before Christmas in 2005, tying the knot by themselves in Mexico. So that makes a song like "Soon as You Can," one of Long Trip's album cuts, even more emotionally charged. Written by Bentley with Brett Beavers and Tony Martin, it's a steel guitar-laced midtempo chugger about a man who can't wait one more minute to spend the rest of his life with the lady he loves (speeding tickets and maxed-out gas cards be damned). And, as evidenced by how he swapped a sweeping gala for a simple south-of-the-border celebration, he's a man of his word.
