Janet Rutland’s “I Fall to Pieces” is a celebration of the music of legendary Nashville songwriters Hank Cochran and Harlan Howard. Their work set the gold standard in traditional country music for decades. Hits like “Make the World Go Away” for Eddie Arnold, “Why Not Me” by the Judds, and George Strait’s “Ocean Front Property” are just a few of the offerings to be sung by Rutland in her 12th SummerStage cabaret show.
A native of Sand Springs, Rutland has performed extensively throughout the Tulsa area for many years. Her performances have included “Pure Country” at the Freeland Center in Bristow, Oklahoma, the “Irving Berlin Tribute” at the Coleman Theatre in Miami, Oklahoma, “Stardust,” songs from 1927, at the Guthrie Green in Tulsa, and, “Janet Rutland Sings the Sixties,” for Summer Stage Tulsa.
Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door.
