In 2000, Rustie released her debut album That Oughta Do It with "I'm Dropping Tears" being the kick off single to impact overseas markets. After her sophomore album, Enter At Your Own Risk, was released two years later, Rustie headed overseas on a promotional tour, bringing her music to Denmark, Belgium, Germany, and The Netherlands. In 2003, Rustie partook on another tour across Australia (where she had the honor of performing at the 17th Annual Telstra Mildura Festival) and also New Zealand.

Momentum gained from Rustie's critically acclaimed album, Chip, Chip made 2004 another winning for her. Chip, Chip featured the title track hit duet with Bill Anderson, and the single received rave reviews. Renowned music journalist Robert K Oermann proclaimed, "Rustie's harmony vocal is on the money. The production thumps right along!" The song won Vocal Collaboration Of The Year in 2005 and staked out at the top of the European Country Music Association Chart for seven weeks! The following year, she stepped on the legendary Grand Ole Opry stage to accept an award for her duet with Bill. A nomination in the "Female Artist of the Year" category in the 2005 Music Box France Awards placed Rustie among big-name contenders: Mary Chapin Carpenter, Alison Krauss, Martina McBride, Reba McEntire, Shania Twain, and Gretchen Wilson! "Cloud Of Dust" and "Don't Come Cryin" (from her Chip Chip album) were both "picked" on the After Midnite with Blair Garner syndicated radio Show.

Four years after the release of her last album comes Stronger Than Steel, and true to it's title, the album showcases some of Rustie's best work to date! She recorded all twelve songs in Nashville recorded by some of Music City's top studio musicians including Lonnie Wilson (percussion) and Larry Franklin (fiddle). Stronger Than Steel features two songs that Rustie co-wrote- the title track and "Cowgirls Do It Better." Country Weekly magazine's Senior Editor, Larry Holden, referred to "Cowgirls" as being "a rompingly funny look at the world of guys and gals." There are also three duets featured on the album. Rustie pairs with the album's producer, Willie Mack, "Stronger Than Steel" and "It Hurts Like Love." The third is her hit duet with Bill Anderson., "Chip, Chip" which is included as the bonus track. Another highlight is "Fall In The First Place," the Terri Clark co-penned tune. "This album has been a long time coming! I'm really fortunate to have such a great talent as Willie Mack produce my new album and to have worked with some of Nashville's award-winning musicans!" Rustie says that, with "Stronger Than Steel," she has hit her stride. "I feel as though I have finally found myself and voice in this album."
