New Year Renewal

After a long spiritual retreat, Rusty Ford is getting back in the musical saddle for 2020! There were many things indicative of the last decade that we are all happy to see receding in the rear view mirror. As we embrace the new micro-millennium, this is a time to redouble our solemn commitment to mirth. Rusty will be playing a lot more shows and rolling out some unrecorded never-before heard satirical country classics. Keep an eye on this space as we post upcoming tour dates and festival gigs. Looking forward to laughing loud with you in the new year.

Rusty Ford’s New Album Cover

Huge shout out to Jodie Ponto for her brill graphics work as usual. I think she captured the spirit of Rusty Ford quite nicely, or as nicely as you can shoot your six-guns from the back of a free falling rodeo shark.

Psychopathic Politician Blues

Woah! Politics in the US has always been a bit weird but it’s hard to imagine a team of screenwriters on acid topping the whacky hijinks unfolding daily in DC. As the President proceeds apace with his frightening assault on free speech and rational thought, Rusty Ford offers up some “fake music” to lighten your day during these dark times.

Huge thanks to the team of experts who helped pull this tune together including the amazing Noah Walker on lead and bass guitar, Jodie Ponto on drums, and all the babes at Babe Hole Studios who made this sound so sweet.

Rusty tried his hand at video editing and had some fun pulling together the cornucopia of clips available on a certain someone that we shall refrain from naming. Enjoy!

Bring Rusty Home

Hey ladies (and all other genders) – ever wish you could bring Rusty Ford home? Of course you do.. How about hosting a house concert? Going to a bar is a expensive, noisy and hard to get as close as you want to the musical magic. House concerts are fun easy and you don’t have to drive anywhere. Get as sloppy as you want –  we won’t mind. Invite your friends, sell drinks or do BYOB. We’ll take $20 each at the door and serenade the adoring crowd in an intimate acoustic setting. Intimate favors negotiable…
