Hurricane Harvey has devastated Texas, and as the recovery effort gets under way, Corb said it is a "no brainer": He's donating the proceeds of his upcoming Texas shows to Hurricane Harvey relief. This includes the already sold-out show in Tomball later this month, and six other shows—in Mckinney, College Station, Fort Worth, San Antonio, Coupland, and Huntsville—in the coming weeks. (The Huntsville show was just added to Corb's tour schedule today!)
Bringing “Western Conversation, Songs, and Stories” to Western Canada
NASHVILLE—Corb Lund comes home to tour Western Canada this fall, but even diehard fans haven’t seen the JUNO Award-winning country star like this: His “B.S. with C.L.” tour is being billed as “An Evening of Western Conversation, Songs, and Stories” and will feature Lund performing—and BSing—solo.
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.
THIS JUST IN: Corb will be hitting the road this fall for a string of *solo* shows spread across several U.S. states. It all kicks off on Sept. 27 in Tomball, Texas, and includes 3 more stops in Texas: McKinney (Sept. 28), College Station (Sept. 29), and Fort Worth (Sept). Corb then heads to Missouri for a night in St. Louis (Oct. 5) before crossing over to Oklahoma, where the tour wraps with shows in Tulsa (Oct. 6) and Oklahoma City (Oct. 7).
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.
