– 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.
