An artist should always take a new project “up a notch” from the previous album. Rustie has done that Big Time. This is a well-crafted, well-produced CD. Rustie has definitely hit her stride, Larry Holden, Country Weekly Senior Editor.
I am excited to be featuring Rustie on tomorrow’s show! "This Friday, I will be featuring a great singer/songwriter by the name of Rustie Blue. I have known Rustie for years and continue to watch her star rise! She recently sent me a copy of her new CD, Stronger Than Steel, and I was blown away by her level of talent and maturity of the album. This is exactly why I started ‘Bar Bands & Basement Tapes’! I want the rest of the nation to know that there is more to country music than just the top 40 songs you hear on most radio stations!" Chris Conn, Host of the national Conman Radio Show.
Rustie has the formula to mix classic country music with a twist of her own cool attitude. Her style is quite posssibly the future of country music, Glenn Sweitzer, Fresh Film+Design.
"The ultimate compliment as a songwriter is to have one of your songs recorded by another artist. In this case, "It Hurts Like Love" has been brought to life in a very special way that could only be done Rustie Blue and Willie Mack. It makes me proud." Deborah Allen
"It's been a four year wait for the new Rustie Blue album and it's been well worth the wait. In that four years Rustie has matured into a performer who is at the very top of her tree on the independent scene, and the only problem was being able to choose the right singles to promote the album. There are so many potential singles on this album - each track offering something different and refreshing. I cannot recommend the album enough; a tremendous effort all round!"
