    Rustie Blue
    "Chip Chip"

    A Note From Rustie: There are certain dates in a lifetime, that you're certain to remember. September 9, 2003 is one for me. One of my dreams came true! I was in the studio with Whisperin' Bill Anderson and we recorded our first duet together.

    Chip Chip is a hit with me! The honor is something I'll never forget. Thanks Bill, for your support in my career. Thanks for the great songs that you have written, and permitted me to record.

    A special thanks to all of the songwriters and musicians. Thanks to the DJs that play my songs, to the fans that buy my music, and to all the fans that come to the concerts. Thanks to all that help me do what I do!

    Another artist from the WSVNRadio Hall of Fame -- This one from Volume 17. Country singer Rustie Blue had released her album Enter At Your Own Risk, and had submitted a song from it, to appear on Volume 17. Afterwards, her next album was released with Country legend Bill Anderson. From it, their duet "Chip Chip" was getting airplay at radio stations. The song is fantastic, and I decided to try and get this particular song on Volume 17. Rustie did change her original choice to "Chip Chip," and not only was Rustie Blue a part of our Hall of Fame Series, Bill Anderson would also be a part of our growing WSVNRadio family.

    Rustie Blue debuts this week, with Chip Chip, an album that not only IS a Country-defining sounding album, it also includes songs penned by Bill Anderson. (Four songs were written and/or co-written by Anderson, including "Chip Chip".) There's no doubt this album truly defines its spot in today's "real sounding Country." Not that "Country music, that really sounds like Pop." It's easy to hear how she blends well with Country, her grandmother was related to Country star Merle Travis. With the star quality running in her family, and having Bill Anderson by her side, Country fans should take attention to her music, and easily agree, that she is a true Country artist, and she should be a part of today's popular Country playlists and formats.

    "Chip Chip" is no doubt the highlight of this album, but then again, the remaining tracks are exceptionally well. Upbeat Country songs, and "serious sounding songs" (if this is what you want to call it) -- These songs are easily compared to another Country legend, Reba McEntire.

    First, for those who are Reba fans, there are many songs compared to her: "Tomorrow Tonight" just may also be compared to another great Country talent, Martina McBride. The "serious sounding" tracks are "The Same Old Who," "When I Remember You", and the upbeat "Don't Come Cryin'." Even "Down To The Letter" (another "serious" one) and the very nice tribute to Dolly Parton, "Smokey Mountain Queen" all are well-done in Rustie's touch.

    As for the remainder, upbeat, honkin' tonkin' numbers are foot-tapping, and enjoyable here: "Cloud Of Dust," "The Devil May Care" (could easily be compared to Rodney Crowell, another great Country artist), "Before I Fall, "Oh Baby," "Two Left Feet" (definitely a nice Brooks & Dunn compare), "Do Me A Favor," "Honky Tonkin' Diva" and the title of this next track really sums it up for this album -- "Satisfied," a great kickin' country track.

    If you're looking for a "true Country" female performer, than look no further, with Rustie Blue. Another proud Country talent, and another artist we are proud to have promoted on WSVNRadio. The latest website for many independent artists is, and Rustie can be found here.
