Corby current backup band the Hurtin' Albertans is the best group of musicians he's ever assembled. The band can play in just about any style of country music be it hard rocking like Steve Earle or some of the more neo-tradtional and Appalacian styles. Corby's co-producer producer and guitarist Harry Stinson has played with Dottie West, Lyle Lovett and George Jones among others.

I'd love to do a couple of review of country albums that I like especially one of Gillian Welch's albums. I'm also a big fan of Steve Young who almost nobody has heard.
Actually Corb Lund does have a decent following in Austin and Nashville.

It's always good to see another Smalls fan too, I gave out My Dear Little Angle a few months ago but not enough people appreciated the gem that I gave them, their loss.

As far as the reviews, get on it buddy!
