Today, country music superstar and Broken Bow Records recording artist Jason Aldean released “Any Ol’ Barstool” (written by Deric Ruttan and Josh Thompson), as his next single to country radio. “I think ‘Any Ol’ Barstool’ is probably one of the best written songs on the album,” says Jason, “…plus, that traditional feel is the Country music I grew up on and has always been important to me to include on our albums. I love that stuff.” “Any Ol’ Barstool” is the third single from Jason’s seventh studio album They Don’t Know.
Congrats to Texas artist Jon Wolfe whose recording of “Boots On A Dance Floor” (co-written by Deric Ruttan and Jonathan Singleton), is #1 on the Texas Regional Radio Report this week. This is the second Ruttan/Singleton collaboration Wolfe has taken to the top of the Texas charts, having done so in December of 2015 with “Don’t It Feel Good.”
Dot Records’ (Big Machine) recording artist Tucker Beathard has released the Deric Ruttan-penned song “Momma And Jesus” as a single to American country radio. “Momma And Jesus” (co-written by Deric, Tucker, and Jonathan Singleton), is the follow-up to Tucker’s chart-topping first single “Rock On.” “Momma And Jesus” was the 2nd most-added new single at country radio this week, and can be found on Tucker’s debut EP Fight Like Hell, available now on iTunes or wherever music is sold.
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.”
