Opening for Corb Lund

March 25th 2011 7:40 am

To top off my nomination for Rising Star at the SCMA’s, I’ve been asked to open for Corb Lund!!
Himself and his Hurtin’ Albertans will be performing the Saturday night of the Saskatchewan Country Music Awards weekend in Swift Current, SK (April 2.) Along with my set – I will also be playing with my good buddies WYATT and CCMA Rising Stars – One More Girl.

Gotta tell you my friends, this one’s a long time coming. Keep putting it out there and the Universe makes it happen.

A freezing cold day on the Ranch (-49 C with windchill) ain’t no laughing matter. And thanks to the lack of wearing a touque during the making of this video I am presently sick as a dog surviving on Buckley’s, NeoCitron (& Wiser’s Deluxe), Fisherman’s Friends, Ricola, and exuberant amounts of water.
