Shows This Weekend: July 29 & 30

harpFriday night (July 29), the fabulous Crazy Horse Ranch and Lodge in West Baden hosts Rusty Bladen.  Situated in enough Orange County seclusion to make you feel like it’s a private party, this is a great place to see a show (And French Lick and the casino is just about 10 minutes away!).  Check out the link above that gives you a look at the place – it is a pretty great deal… (Map/Directions)

Showtime: 6:00pm (note early start time) / $5

Saturday night (July 30), Rusty takes the show to HoPfest, at German Park in Indianapolis.  The festival, featuring breweries like Noble Brewery, Taxman Brewery, Tow Yard Brewing and New Day Meadery, runs from 5-11pm. Rusty will hit the stage at approx. 6pm, but get there early to make sure; if the place is rocking, he may go on early. A beerfest!  Love it. (Map/Directions)

Showtime: approx 6:00pm / $5

Two performers:
Rusty Bladen
Soul Sauce Trio

New single and video released


At midnight on July 1, Rusty Bladen released the brand new video for the single “Where Did I Go Wrong?” from his For The Better album.  The album and song were produced by Thom Daugherty (former guitar player for The Elms and The Band Perry).

The video was filmed on location in the town of Madison, Indiana.  The beautiful former Eggleston Elementary School in downtown Madison was used as one location for the video, including performance footage shot in an empty classroom that contained a beautiful old red couch.  Multiple performance videos were also shot on the original auditorium stage at the school.  In addition, filming took place near the banks of the Ohio River, and also at two locations at Rusty’s house.

Live video footage was captured at two Indiana shows: Whiskey Business in Indianapolis, and the Rusty Bucket Venro in Charlestown.

The video was produced in a partnership between Rockforward Media and River Road Records.
