Highlights From Rusty's Bio:

Rusty is an award-winning versatile artist with over 50 years of professional experience in the music industry covering the genres of country, rock, pop, gospel, and Christian contemporary. His decades of experience include all aspects of music recording -- from songwriting and performing, to production and promotion.  

At the age of 19, Rusty played on his first #1 record with Larry Gatlin. The next year he received a solo development deal with ABC MCA and at 24 he received an RIAA GOLD record as a songwriter. That has been followed up by two Billboard top 40 singles, Songwriter of the Year trophies from SGMA, two Song of the Year awards, two Grammy nominated albums, 2010 BMI AWARD most performed traditional gospel song, and six #1 charting songs. He is honored to have performed on the Grand Ole Opry stage many times -- most recently in October 2022, sharing the stage with good friends Larry, Steve, & Rudy - The Gatlin Brothers.
