Playing today’s country hits and originals, Adam Rutledge & Co. put on a high energy live show that shouldn’t be missed. In addition to playing today’s country and Top-40 hits, they have a catalog of their own original tunes. In 2011 Rutledge released their first music video for their single “I Love My Life” to rave reviews, and have since released videos for the tracks “Rub a Little Dirt On It” and “July”. Now billing as Adam Rutledge, the group continues to record and play to packed venues from here to Nashville and beyond as they work their way to their first big break.
