LUND RISES TO #7 ON AMERICANA RADIO CHART
Corb Lund – the songwriter descended from four generations of Albertan ranchers who used to play metal and punk music – will play NYC's Hilly Country Live November 14. For his new album 'Cabin Fever,' Lund traveled to NYC, along with Austin, Las Vegas, and Alberta, to pen the sharp and often wry songs.
Amid raves from NPR, NY Times, UNCUT and others, Corb scored a personal best with a #13 debut on the Billboard Heatseekers chart and a #60 debut on the Billboard Indie Chart for his "breakthrough" (Washington Post) album 'Cabin Fever.' The album also debuted at #1 on Billboard's Canadian Top 200 albums chart. NPR said, "Impressive... great songs... Lund finds glory in tough work, spotting characters most people would overlook, and celebrating them with colorful sketches... Corb Lund's ironic humor and keen sense of American culture is similar to Hayes Carll."
Meanwhile, Lund has risen to #7 on the Americana radio charts.
Goth girls to survivalists, bovines to bibles, antique pistols to vintage motorcycles: Lund’s songcraft covers it all. Most recently, CMT.com just posted his new music video to the heartbreaking "September."
