Lund sets U.S. tour
Tuesday, November 20, 2018
– Canadian singer Corb Lund is returning to the U.S. early next year for a tour in advance of releasing a new disc.
Many of the shows will be in the west.
"I feel a deep bond and shared roots with the audiences I perform for, especially out west," Lund said. "Coming from a multi-generational ranching family from Alberta, Canada, and Utah before that, I relate closely to cowboy culture and its authenticity. It's a part of the U.S. I especially enjoy touring as I feel very at home there."
Backed by his long-time honky tonk band, the Hurtin' Albertans are Kurt Ciesla, bass; Grant Siemens, guitar and Brady Valgardson, drums.
"There aren't many artists still making this kind of western music," Lund said. "Personally, I feel like I still have a real stake in it. That's why I believe that the people that admire a vintage approach really appreciate what we do. And for us, it's really gratifying to be able to perform it for them."
"It seems to have developed that way," he nods. "I didn't necessarily plan it, but it feels really good that that's how it's evolved."
Lund will release an EP of unexpected cover songs with an album of original material to follow soon after.
Lund has released nine studio albums. His seventh album, "Cabin Fever," debuted atop the Billboard Canadian charts.

Things That Can't Be Undone
While it is perhaps unfair to put too much focus on the producer of an album, the current weight of having a production credit from Dave Cobb (Jason Isbell, Jamey Johnson) is certain to garner notice from fans of high quality songwriters. Cobb's recent albums have an organic sound showcasing his natural ability to push an artist to realize their full creative potential. Canadian artist Corb Lund decided to work with Cobb on his latest release, and the results are eye opening. »»»
Corb Lund is a Canadian artist, whose gritty blend of country, blues, folk, jazz and more made him a surprise success on the musically conservative national country landscape. After rising to the top of the Canadian scene, Lund set his sights south of the border to the notoriously tough American roots music scene. He released his debut in 1995, while still a part of the underground punk/metal group The Smalls of Edmonton. But it wasn't until late 2009 when he released "Losin' Lately »»»
Corb Lund and the Hurtin' Albertans may be the hardest working outfit in country music. Their work and growth shows up in the skill and diversity found on their new release, "Cabin Fever." Since his debut in 1995, Lund has specialized in crossing country styles from Texas swing to traditional country with occasional stops in the singing-cowboy influence of Roy Rogers.
This new stream of songs are as varied as they are entertaining and engaging. The secret here is in the »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk
When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Bentley brings the A-listers
Dierks Bentley's Valentine's Day "Burning Man World 2019 Tour" stop celebrated his album, "The Mountain," one of his best full-lengths to date.
