Rusty Ford - An Inappropriate Troubadour
The bastard middle-aged lovechild of Porter Wagoner and Wanda Jackson, Rusty Ford wants to bring country music a bouquet of flowers and give her a hickey.
Based in Vancouver, Rusty Ford is singer-songwriter whose unique tunes are a saucy salute to the golden age of classic country.
Inspired by a gag email of the top ten worst country songs never written, his tongue-in-cheek love ballads include "I Hate Every Bone in Your Body Except Mine", and "I Miss You But My Aim's Improving".
Rusty's rocking band the Extra Regulars features the Noah Walker on lead guitar Jodie Ponto on drums (both of Kitty and the Rooster) and Terri Upton on standup bass. In addition to a rich line up of original tunes, they can bring the house down with a full set of uncannily channeled classics from the late great Stompin’ Tom Conners.
Rusty’s tunes are aimed straight for your heart, ricocheting off your funny bone. If you’re looking for a fun detour from the musical mainstream, Rusty can give you ride.
“Rusty Ford’s My Truck, My Dog, and You is country gold”
