Deric Ruttan Will Be "Up All Night" In September

Canadian artist Deric Ruttan is getting ready to release his first ever live album “Up All Night” on September 10th, 2011. The album was recorded at his performance at the 2011 Calgary Stampede, and will feature his biggest hits from his past albums as well as three new studio tracks. The lead single, and first studio track, “She’s Like a Song,” will be sent to radio on August 29th, 2011.

“Sometime during my 2010 Sunshine Tour, on stage somewhere between Vancouver and Summerside, I made the decision that my next CD would be a live album,” says Ruttan. “There’s an excitement and energy that happens when my band and I play these songs for people. I wanted to capture that spirit and our live show on an album. I think we did just that with Up All Night – Deric Ruttan Live. The three new songs I recorded for the album fit right in with the energy and vibe of the live album concept, and I’m anxious for radio to hear those.”

Deric recently received multiple Canadian Country Music Association  (CCMA) Award nominations including Male Artist of the Year, CMT Video Of The Year, Single Of The Year and Songwriter Of The Year. His independent label, Black T Records, also earned a 2011 CCMA nomination for Record Label Of The Year. He was nominated for a Juno Award earlier in the year for his self-produced album “Sunshine” (2010).

He’s also had his songs recorded by other artists including Eric Church, Dierks Bentley, Gary Allan, Terri Clark and Aaron Pritchett. Eric Church’s huge hit “Hell On The Heart” hit number 8 on the mediabase charts and was co-written by Deric. In 2003, he collaborated with Brett Beavers for Dierks Bentley’s hit “What Was I Thinkin'” and Dierks’ “Lot Of Leaving Left To Do” was also a Deric write. Dierks took the later song to number five on the Billboard charts.

Deric will join fellow CCMA award nominees Dean Brody and Aaron Lines on the CMT Hitlist tour. The CMT Hitlist tour is a 26-city cross-Canada tour launches in Kelowna, British Columbia on September 22nd.
