Country music icon Ronnie Dunn (of legendary country music duo Brooks & Dunn), has included a Deric Ruttan song called “I Put That There” (co-written with Jonathan Singleton), on his new album Tattooed Heart, out today on Nash Icon Records. Says Deric, “When I joined my first touring country music bar band, B & D’s ‘Brand New Man’ and ‘Boot Scootin’ Boogie’ were staples of our set. I learned and sang these songs every night on the road so, B & D were a big part of my country music schooling when I decided I wanted to pursue country music...
Deric and the band will be returning to Country Thunder Saskatchewan (the festival formerly known as Craven Country Jamboree), on July 16, 2017. “I remember the first time we played Craven,” says Deric. “The energy was incredible. The prairies in Canada is one of my favorite places to play an outdoor show. They’re passionate about their country music and it shows. They let you know they’re glad you’re there, which amps us up and makes us want to give them everything we have. Country Thunder Saskatchewan 2017 is gonna be a great time.”
