Corb Lund: Solo Acoustic Tour

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 androdeo 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."

Songs My Friends Wrote is the follow up to 2020’s critically acclaimed Agricultural Tragic, Lund’s first studio album of original material in 5 years, which earned him the 2021 CCMA award for Alternative Country Album of the Year, his 13th career win. Lund also recently had his debut on stage at the historic Grand Ole Opry.
