Best Yet, Dec 21 2005
It seemed like Corb Lund was everywhere in 2005, touring Australia with Willie Nelson, playing for the Queen in Edmonton, and as part of Alberta's centennial celebrations in Ottawa, not to mention a rodeo in France and gigs in the UK. This album is infectious from the opening "Hair in My Eyes Like a Highland Steer" to the closing "Truck Got Stuck Talking Blues" with Ramblin Jack Elliott. In between there's some grandfatherly advice "Always Keep An Edge on Your Knife" and a nostalgic ode
about the Alberta landscape "Little Foothills Heaven." It's easy to see why this album won the "roots and traditional album
of the year" at the Canadian Country Music awards and why Corb
was named Western Canada's Entertainer of the Year. The only problem now is getting a ticket to one of their concerts. They're frequently sold out!
