Corb Lund has received multiple CCMA, JUNO, and international award nominations and wins. A rural Albertan hailing from the foothills of the Rocky Mountains with a long family lineage of ranchers and rodeo people, Lund is about as authentic as they come. Embracing both his Western heritage and his indie rock past through his music, Lund has been known to filter a range of cowboy themes past and present through his unique lens – from rough-and-tumble tales of lawless frontier saloons to the somber realities of running a modern family ranch.
Most recently, Lund released Songs My Friends Wrote. The 10-song set features Lund putting his spin on some of his favorite songs written by close friends and world-class songwriters such as Hayes Carll, Todd Snider, Canadian Country Music Legend Ian Tyson, and more. Met with critical acclaim, Holler said in their 8.5 out of 10 Star review, “Lund unearths, dusts off and revives lost should-have-been classics, hopefully encouraging listeners to search out the original versions” while American Songwriter said, “Lund remains a singular artist, and the fact that he can take outside material without being affected by any dominating influence provides all the proof we needed.” No Depression said “…he and his band, the Hurtin’ Albertans, deliver lively, empathetic versions that will renew your appreciation for the songs you’re familiar with and pique your interest in the writers of those you’re not” while Glide Magazine said “…the appeal is unavoidable.”
