BLAKE BERGLUND & KENNEDY RODEO RELEASE “RAISED ON THE WHISKEY” TO CANADIAN COUNTRY RADIO

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, AUGUST 23, 2010 (SASKATCHEWAN) Blake Berglund’s first radio single, RAISED ON THE WHISKEY, from his Sophomore album “Ends of the Earth” has been released to Canadian country radio for the week of August 23, 2010. With the grassroots success of Berglund’s underground debut album, self-titled “Blake Berglund & Kennedy Rodeo” SELLING OVER 8000 COPIES, Berglund sees this first release as “rain to the seeds planted.” RAISED ON THE WHISKEY was written by Berglund in his true “hard-lifestyle” fashion and executed through his melodic production sensibilities. With Berglund writing or co-writing all eleven tracks released on “Ends of the Earth,” RAISED ON THE WHISKEY serves as a chapter to the story told throughout the album.

In his words…

“With this blessing of a digital music world, it’s easy to see a product 3-4 minutes at a time and loose sight of that artist collective end result. “Raised on the Whiskey” will give new listeners and old fans an open door to see where I’ve evolved as a songwriter and also lays down the groundwork for following releases”

With an eclectic sound that seamlessly unites cowboy storytelling, traditional instrumentation, R&B vocal phrasing, and rock & roll attitude, Berglund is designed to “kick in doors” through the forgotten art of hard work learned as a youngster. Berglund grew up caring for two-hundred head of quarter horses on his family ranch in the Southeast corner of Saskatchewan. Those humble beginnings keep Berglund modest and have shaped him as an artist and poet. “With a speech pathologist for a mother and an auctioneering cowboy for a father, it’s really hard not to have ‘words’ as a career choice,” Berglund jokes.

Blake Berglund & Kennedy Rodeo are presently touring and in strong contact and promotion with radio stations across the country and will be attending this years CCMA’s in Edmonton, AB.
