Backstage Pass with Country Music Songwriter Rivers Rutherford
Memphis Native Rivers Rutherford exploded onto the Country Music scene in 1989 when four American Icons – Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson and Kris Kristofferson recorded one of his songs.
His first #1 hit – “AINT NOTHIN BOUT YOU” by Brooks and Dunn remains as their most successful single and earned Rivers the Song of the Year in 2002.
He has penned #1 hits for Tim McGraw and Montgomery Gentry and Top Ten hits for Gretchen Wilson, Gary Allen, Faith Hill, LeAnn Rimes and Keith Urban.
Rivers will take part in an informal interview and talk about song writing and tell a few good stories – he’ll play some songs – and answer questions from the audience.
