Paige Rutledge Releases New Single “Used to This”

Latest Release Kicks Off Her 2024

“Used To This” is your single-girl summer jam. Best listened to with the volume up and window down, this empowering anthem blends energetic pop-country guitar hooks with captivating and catchy lyrics.


“I wrote this song two years ago with Deegan Reeves, Joe Tounge, and Jack Book and knew that I wanted to write something that gave the attitude of “I’m going to be ok” after a breakup. The lyrics focus on never apologizing for who you are and finding the person you were before a relationship, something that I think many people can relate to and need to hear.

Whether it is you yourself experiencing this feeling, or seeing a friend go through it, we all have felt “lost” after a relationship ends. When we started to do pre-production for this song, it was really important to me that same feeling was captured through the instruments and feel of the song. It’s an upbeat song with a powerful message behind it. This song is all about finding you.”

Vibrant, energetic and dynamic are words that have been used to describe Paige Rutledge. Growing up in Oakville, Ontario, Paige was raised on country music. When Paige was nine, her grandfather who was her biggest influence, passed away and Paige sang at the funeral. It was in that moment Paige recognized that music can connect people and knew she wanted to make music for the rest of her life.

Paige is one of Ontario’s most exciting upcoming country artists. 2023 proved to be Paige’s best year yet with her heartfelt single, “Gone Ain’t Really Gone”, followed by the pleading ballad, “The Worst Thing”. “The Worst Thing” earned Paige a slot in regular rotation on SiriusXM Radio’s Top Of The Country. Paige showcased at the CMAOntario Awards weekend, headlined Yonge and Dundas Square, and was a finalist in Lucknow’s Music in the Fields Emerging Artist Showdown. Paige also opened for Walker Hayes at Thunder Bay’s Country on the Bay summer festival. To cap off the year, she showcased at the CCMA’s Country Music Week with the Diamonds in the Rough Showcase and released the stripped down version and video for “The Worst Thing”.

Paige has received editorial support on a number of playlists, including Spotify’s RADAR and Live Country (now North Country), EQUAL, and Amazon Music’s Breakthrough Country, Just North of Nashville, and Brand New Music.

As a songwriter, Paige values the authenticity in country music and writes music that everyone can find a version of their truth in. “I want my songs to be relatable to my listeners and have everyone find a piece of them in it” says Paige. Releasing her first single at 16, Paige has learnt a lot along the way and has used this past year to really solidify her artistry. Paige’s notable recent releases include: Take Me Back to Tiki (October 2020), Gone Ain’t Really Gone (March 2023), Dinking Alone (August 2022), Ain’t That Bad (November 2022) and the Worst Thing (November 2023).

Paige is currently working on her debut EP, slated for release in late 2024. This summer Paige will provide support for Tyler Joe Miller and Jason McCoy at the Hollyrood Country Jamboree, with more show announcements to come.
