Corb Lund On Mountain Stage

Originally published on Wed July 2, 2014 8:35 am

Corb Lund makes his first appearance on Mountain Stage, recorded live at the Culture Center Theater in Charleston, W.Va. Lund was born into a family of Canadian cattle ranchers and spent most of his youth in Alberta's southern foothills. Perhaps as a result, his particular blend of country mixes the best of cowboy music, Western swing and rockabilly with a steely edge.

Lund's sound hasn't gone unnoticed: He's won a Juno award and counts Dierks Bentley among his biggest fans, while superstar Miranda Lambert recently tweeted that she's a "total fan" of his music. Lund has also toured with Americana favorite Hayes Carll, who guested in "Bible on the Dash" from Lund's most recent album, Cabin Fever.

Here, Lund plays songs from Cabin Fever and is backed by his own band, including Grant Siemens on lead guitar and mandolin, Kurt Ciesla on upright bass and drummer Brady Valgardson.

Set List

  • "Gettin' Down On The Mountain"
