Coming out of the small southern town of Davidson, NC, Rusty writes music about life, love, loss and rebirth (you may find a couple of songs about mischief and alcohol too). Traveling across the southeast most of his life and having a very large family has given him the insight and experiences that fill up a songwriter's journal with poems, ballads, prayers and random confusion...makes for some great songs!
Rusty's freshman CD, "Reason Why", was more than a mere introduction to the music world. Janet Goodman's review in Music News Nashville says: "With a straightforward everyman's voice, Rusty brings lyrics that are down and dirty honest, from a reservoir of lifetime tales".
"JUDGEMENT" the long awaited sophomore CD is out, available and amazing. Order your copy today...you won't be disappointed.
Rusty has been nominated for the 2012 Songwriter of the Year by The Charlotte Music Awards and The Rusty Knox Band has been nominated for the 2012 Americana/Bluegrass Band of the Year by both The Charlotte Music Awards and The Carolina Music Awards.
Seeing Rusty live gives everyone something to go away with, a picture of our lives, put to music, that hits dead center.
