Cowboy Confidential 

Corb Lund brings his foot-stompin' country to the Casino.

You get a real cowboy with Corb Lund, raised on a ranch in Alberta, Lund spent a decade playing in the punk band The Smalls before he returned to his country roots and was rewarded with plenty of critical acclaim. Seven albums later, he's still riding strong with Cabin Fever topping the Canadian Billboard charts and increasing popularity in the US. "It's a good record," says Lund. "We drank a lot of beer, didn't use any studio layering or trickery. It's real. Basically a live album." Authenticity is important to Lund, it's why he stays in touch with his ranching roots and doesn't use a set list at his shows preferring to "wing it" so it feels right. And it works---everyone from rural cowboys to aging punk rockers and song writing folk show up at his shows. Now you can add yourself to that list, too. --Lindsay Rainingbird
