POCO's Rusty Young and Jack Sundrud Rock Nashville; Get RLB T-Shirts
Rusty Young heads up the band in 2017. He is a co-founder of POCO dating back to 1968 which means that next year the group is gearing up to celebrate their 50th anniversary of recording and touring. As amazing as that fact is the real news emerging from POCOworld is that Rusty is finally taking a long overdue stab at a solo career with the September release of the impressive Waitin' For The Sun - a stunning and eclectic 10 song set produced by Young and his POCO bandmate, Jack Sundrud.
Speaking of Jack - we love the man. It doesn't get much better then what he gave the world a few years back on his own By My Own Hand record. Jack is a legitimate county music star, too, as the frontman for the now defunct but still great Great Plains. If you ever get a chance to listen to their "Iola" it's an unforgettable earworm about the hard life often faced by the family farmer.
We met up with both Rusty and Jack at The Filming Station when they headlined a special show for AmericanaFest that doubled as Rusty's CD release party. And, of course, we gave them both Rich Lynch Band T-Shirts to welcome them back to Music City.text
