Corb Lund Plays At Rhythm & Brews Feb. 7

Thursday, January 24, 2013

Corb Lund – the descendant of four generations of Albertan ranchers and former punk/metal player – is planning a U.S. run of dates in February with his longtime band The Hurtin' Albertans, including a stop at Rhythm & Brews on Feb. 7.

Review for Corb Lund:

 In the Nashville Scene's 13th Annual Country Music Critics' Poll, Corb Lund is the #10 male vocalist and 'Cabin Fever' is the #20 best album of 2012. 

Others have agreed. 'Cabin Fever' (New West) was named to year-end best lists by 29-95 (Houston Chronicle) and No Depression and caught the number one spot on The Oregonian's list. American Songwriter named "September" one of its top 50 songs of 2012.

Meanwhile, Miranda Lambert and Dierks Bentley confirmed that Corb Lund will open a date April 12 in Springfield, Mo. 

Goth girls to survivalists, bovines to bibles, antique pistols to vintage motorcycles: Lund’s songcraft creates vivid images and character sketches with hard-worn western language. Raves have run in the NY Times, NPR All Things Considered, Paste, and elsewhere.

Where Is The Speed Control On Our Highways? - And Response (3)

I am teaching my 15-year-old to drive in the North Georgia and Chattanooga area. I have warned her of the dangers of exceeding the speed limit both as a hazard to herself and in terms of receiving a ticket. What a liar I am.  Have you driven on the local freeways and highways recently? I never see any highway patrolmen helping to reduce speeding or pulling over those who ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: The Testerman Forum

I badly misjudged how long it would take me to do my “early voting.” I was in-and-out in no time so I got to the Hamilton County School Board’s agenda meeting well enough beforehand to have an “educational forum” with board member David Testerman. If you haven’t noticed, forums and summits and “community enlightenment” groups are the new rage and, as my friend David laughed, “They ... (click for more)
