BEST OF 2012 ACCOLADES ACCOMPANY OPENING SLOT FOR DIERKS BENTLEY & MIRANDA LAMBERT
Corb Lund – the descendent of four generations of Albertan ranchers and
former punk/metal player – is planning a U.S. run of dates in February
with his longtime band The Hurtin' Albertans. In the Nashville Scene's
13th Annual Country Music Critics' Poll, Corb Lund is the #10 male
vocalist and 'Cabin Fever' is the #20 best album of 2012.
Others have agreed. 'Cabin Fever' (New West) was named to year-end best
lists by 29-95 (Houston Chronicle) and No Depression and caught the
number one spot on The Oregonian's list. American Songwriter named
"September" one of its top 50 songs of 2012.
Meanwhile, Miranda Lambert and Dierks Bentley confirmed that Corb Lund will open a date April 12 in Springfield, MO.
Goth girls to survivalists, bovines to bibles, antique pistols to
vintage motorcycles: Lund’s songcraft creates vivid images and character
sketches with hard-worn western language. Raves have run in the NY
Times, NPR All Things Considered, Paste, and elsewhere.
