Kentucky-born singer/songwriter Rusty Tabor has been performing on stage since the ripe young age of 14. After a short-lived college football career, he packed up and moved to Nashville in 2001 - within his first year there, Rusty had landed his first publishing deal with Skidaddy Music. Billy Ray Cyrus quickly took a liking to Rusty’s songwriting style and recorded 2 songs out of that first catalog: “Back to Memphis,” a single off of Cyrus’ Time Flies album, and soon after “Wouldn’t You Do This For Me” on his The Other Side album. He soon found another writing home with Plus Spins Music. From that catalog came “All I’ve Got Left” recorded by Russell Hitchcock (formerly of Air Supply) on his Tennessee: The Nashville Project double CD, and IBMA Male Vocalist of the Year winner Bradley Walker recorded “One Paragraph” for his upcoming Rounder Records album. The future is brighter than bright for Rusty nowadays. In January of 2011 he was offered a chance to be a part of legendary songwriter Earl Bud Lee’s publishing company. “I JUMPED at that opportunity!” he says. “Bud Lee is one of the most successful writers in the business with hits like "Friends in Low Places," "One Night at a Time" and "Who Are You When I’m Not Looking." He’s not only a master at what he does, he’s one of my favorite people in this world.” Rusty is currently in the studio working on his own album with some of the best in the business.
