Music Exposure 2: Corb Lund and the Hurtin’ Albertans

I’m sure many readers of this post will be quite familiar with this Taberbased singer and his long time band the Hurtin’ Albertans, but in case there is anyone left in Southern Alberta who hasn’t heard of these talented people I decided to feature them this week on Music Exposure. Although I am not a huge fan of this style of country music generally, the fact that I can easily relate to them (being that I grew up in rural Alberta like Corb) makes them a lovable alternative to my usual tunes.

The first song I ever heard by this band was “The Truck Got Stuck”, and at the risk of sounding incredibly redneck, I loved every minute of it. Every situation he described in that song made me laugh because I had either been in that situation or knew someone who had. Such is the appeal of Corb Lund’s music, its fun, easy to relate to, and above all, played by talented musicians.

Unfortunately I have never seen them live, although much of my family has, and they all say they are a joy to watch. As they released their sixth studio album last year Losin’ Lately Gambler, I’m sure Corb and the Albertans will be finding themselves in this area sometime soon, so for a night of fun music be sure to check them out!
