Follow Lamon artist Dusty Sanderson through thick woods, down a bright red dirt road, over a rickety bridge, and by a lakeshore in Bluff Springs, Florida, and he’ll show you where it all began.
The country singer/songwriter has been the life of bonfire parties for years in that very spot. Warm summer nights spent strumming his guitar, covering country and southern rock songs matured Dusty as an artist. Before long, he had gigs at local venues and started writing his own music.
Dusty signed with Lamon Records and recorded his four-song EP at Quad Studios in Nashville with Grammy nominated producer Dave Moody. His first music video for the title track “Chuggin’ Along” was shot in January. The video truly captures Dusty in his element. It’s reminiscent of those nights of pickup trucks, solo cups, and loud music. All of his friends came out to recreate the bonfire parties where Dusty found his calling.
The first single has just hit country radio stations across the nation. The four-song album highlights Dusty’s songwriting abilities, and in addition to the title cut features the catchy, cleverly self-referential “Dang Good Country Song,” “Country to the Stone,” and the ballad “This Old Guitar.”
“I’m really excited about the new album,” Dusty says. “It’s always awesome to see your hard work turned into a reality.”
“It’s very ‘now,’” says his producer Dave Moody, president of Lamon Records, “a mixture of backwoods country and hard driving high energy rock. I think he’s drawing from the best of today’s country artists, and classic outlaw artists too, like David Alan Coe, Waylon Jennings, and others. Whatever he’s doing, it seems to be working.” .
