New Rob Ford Single

Hi Rusty Fans!

As a home-town guy I thought it was important to chronicle the exploits of Toronto’s celebrity mayor Rob Ford.

The song might not be that family-friendly but I’m not saying anything that His Worship has not said himself in front of the world… Hope you enjoy this satirical salute to someone who crazily may be our country’s most famous citizen.

Rusty’s New Track

Hi Folks – I recorded a new track when I was down in Nashville a while back and you can hear on my Sound Cloud sampler. It’s called Baby I Need You. It was a real pleasure to play with some of the hottest session musicians in town at the legendary Butcher Shop Studio. Big thanks to the recording engineer Sean Sullivan and the amazing players he lined up for me!

My Truck, My Dog and You is “Country Gold”

Big thanks to Vancouver’s Georgia Straight for calling Rusty’s new album”country gold”!

According to the Straight:

“What might be most impressive about My Truck, My Dog, and You is that most classic-country fans won’t get the joke. Rusty Ford is based in Lotusland, but the golden-great tunes on this completely professional full-length seem beamed in from the boardrooms of Nashville circa ’74.

With zero imagination, you can picture rural Midwestern shit-kickers loving “I Hate Every Bone in Your Body (Except Mine)” and “I Miss You But My Aim’s Improving”—without, of course, understanding that Ford is singing every line with a knowing wink, even if he sounds more serious than Johnny Cash on “Hurt”.

As for you, if a hard-working pickup owner staggering around the Airstream piss-drunk, yelling at the wife and kids while unironically singing “I Drink Because You Cry”, seems hilarious, get ready for country gold.”

There’s no joke folks – just damn fine country music. Big thanks to my ol buddy Luther Wright for making this album sound so good.
