Russ’s songs have been opry star Jack Greene, Ed Bruce, and Amy Dugger for her own tv show pilot. Russ’ song Same Ol’ Feelin’ Feelin’ was in the movie Varsity Blues.
Russ has appeared in shows with Bob Hope, Ed Bruce, Bill Monroe, B. J. Thomas, Charlie Daniels, the Judds, Tanya Tucker, etc. Russ has provided voice overs for civil war museum documentaries, and commercials for Coke, Kroger, Pepsi, Taco Bell, Burger King, to mention just a few.
Russ feels just as at home singing in a small coffee shop as he does in front of 15,000. Russ says, “Recording a song you created is such a blast but I would say the most pleasurable part of music is the songwriting. Then a close second would be watching the faces of the audience when they hear it for the first time. They’ll let you know if it’s any good or not.”
Russ says “Music is a gift from above. We should enjoy it as such.”
