About Rivers Rutherford...



Rivers Rutherford was born and raised in Memphis, Tennessee and began his musical education at the age of seven, when he took up the piano and guitar.  The childhood home was four blocks from Graceland, Elvis Presley's estate.  As a result, 'The King' became one of Rivers Rutherford's strongest childhood influences, as did Memphis' renowned Beale Street musicians.

River Rutherford's greatest influence was his father, who encouraged him from a young age.  By the time he was fifteen, Rivers Rutherford was performing on the Memphis Queen Riverboat and learning R&B classics from Otis Ray Redding Junior (Tuesday 9 September 1941 - Sunday 10 December 1967), Sam & Dave and Booker T.

Rivers Rutherford graduated to the clubs on Beale Street and then attended the University of Mississippi on a music scholarship and studied piano and English.

Rivers Rutherford then became acquainted with producer Chips Moman, who was working with The Highwaymen on their second album.  Chips Moman enjoyed Rivers Rutherford's playing and eventually signed Rivers to a song-writing deal, which led to his first cut.



Chips Moman invited Rivers Rutherford to Nashville where he met The Highwaymen: Johnny Cash (Friday 26 February 1932 - Friday 12 September 2003), Waylon Jennings (Tuesday 15 June 1937 - Wednesday 13 February 2002), Kris Kristofferson and Willie Nelson.  The four superstars recorded Rivers Rutherford's 'American Remains' and included the track on 'Highwaymen 2' (Columbia Records, 1990).

After a brief stint in law school in 1991 and a move to Nashville in 1993, Rivers Rutherford began to make a name for himself as an entertainer, studio guitar player and songwriter.

When Rivers Rutherford and his wife began a family, Rivers took on more and more studio work; Rivers played guitar on albums by Tracy Byrd, Mark Chesnutt, Amy Grant, Point of Grace and Ringo Starr, among others.

In 1996, Rivers Rutherford signed a publishing deal with Universal Music Publishing Group and, at the time of the acquisition of this Gene Watson 'Peer's Quote', in October 2006, he was still working for the company.
