If you’ve been cooped up in close quarters and are hankering for some new music from one of Canadian country’s most iconic contributors, Corb Lund has just released a deluxe edition of his landmark album “Cabin Fever,” which was nominated for Saving Country Music’s Album of the Year
2012 was a bumper crop year for great albums in the greater country music world, and that necessitates a bolstered lineup of candidates for Saving Country Music’s coveted Album of the Year. 7 total made the list, with others admittedly getting completely screwed by their absence. I already have a bead of sweat forming across my brow brought on by the impossible decision of who I’m supposed to pick off this list.
100 Proof, Bloody Jug Band, Cabin Fever, Calamity Cubes, Cigarettes & Truckstops, Coffin Up Blood, Corb Lund, Eric Strickland, Goodbye Normal Street, Honky Tonk Till I Die, James Hand, Justin Townes Earle, Kellie Pickler, Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires, Lindi Ortega, Mighty Lonesome Man, New Year's Poem, Olds Sleeper, Rachel Brooke, Ray Wylie Hubbard, Turnpike Troubadours
50% of Americans may not be able to correctly identify that Saskatchewan is a part of Canada, or comprehend that Canadians are technically Americans too, but if one of your friends has been exposed to Canadian country singer Corb Lund’s music and scoffs it off as something too foreign for their ears, you may want to seriously consider a renouncement of said friend’s country music citizenship.
