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.
