As some of you know, I recently partnered with Budweiser on their "Alberta Made" campaign. It kicked off last month in conjunction with the Calgary Stampede, and things have rolled out in the weeks since—including a commercial featuring yours truly. A few of you (including some local craft brew enthusiasts) have questioned why I did the commercial so I thought I would try to explain why this decision made sense to me.
Corb and Budweiser are thrilled to announce they've joined forces on a new campaign celebrating Corb's home province. "Alberta Made" premiered during the Calgary Stampede, and includes nationwide TV commercials featuring Corb's song, "Counterfeit Blues."
As part of the campaign, Corb performed at Budweiser’s exclusive win-your-way-in "Alberta Made" Calgary Stampede wrap-up party.
On July 1, 1967, a musician by the name of Stompin' Tom Connors took to the stage for the very first time. Fifty years later, Corb salutes the late great icon by contributing his rendition of one of Stompin’ Tom’s lesser known—but still fantastic—tracks, “The Consumer,” to the “Stompin' Tom Connors 50th Anniversary” CD.
