Rusty Van Sickle has a voice that feels familiar the first time you hear it. Like an old friend on the other end of the phone that you haven’t talked to in a while, Rusty just makes you feel like everything’s cool. Equal parts Don Williams, James Taylor, Vince Gill, and Keith Whitley, Rusty comes by music by way of family history.
It wasn’t long before Rusty’s talent was recognized and he was hired to play acoustic guitar and sing background vocals for country star Doug Stone. He held that job for several years until another country star, John Michael Montgomery heard Rusty sing and made him an offer he couldn’t refuse to come and work for him. He is currenlty a member of John Michael’s band, but is continually working on furthering his own career.
When he’s not writing or performing, you’ll likely find Rusty in one of three places; in the outdoors fishing or hunting, or at home spending time with his wife Kara, and their son Whitley, named after Rusty’s biggest musical hero.
