Below is an interesting tidbit Preston had mentioned in our talks of ‘the road life’.
Current Country star Deric Ruttan (Guitar, singer and hit song writer) played in Preston’s band in 1992 through 1994. The Bracebridge born musician had 5 Top Ten singles, (including the hits, “When You Come Around”, “Shine”, and “Take The Wheel”), and earned him a “Best Album” nomination at the 2004 Canadian Country Music Awards. “Male Vocalist” and “Rising Star” nominations followed, as did the Grand Ol’ Opry appearances, and a high-profile national tour. In 2004 he was named “Best New Solo Country Artist” at the Canadian Radio Music Awards. Stateside though, Ruttan’s artist career was about to be eclipsed by his songwriting success.
Deric Ruttan has also co-written hits for Dierks Bentley. Bentley’s debut “What Was I Thinkin'”, was a #1 Billboard hit. Deric has written 24 hits to date for various top artists, but earned his dues touring at an early age with the likes of the ‘Bradley J. Preston Band’.
