A tune for a rainy day
Corb Lund is guaranteed to put a grin on my face every time I hear him on the radio. He’s a pretty wonderful Alberta musician who grew up near my husband (though he’s four years younger) and he sings some hilarious quirky songs about farming, ranching and related adventures. His sense of humour tickles my funny bone — and he just seems like a down-home decent kind of guy. The fact that he sings about bestowing a western blessing, “May you always have cows around,” appeals to the prairie girl in me. I’ve always liked cows, too — there’s something kind of calming about them. And Corb’s vibe is like a drive down a dusty dirt road with happy tunes on a gorgeous sunny day. Mmm, smell that fresh air (unless there are a LOT of cows around)!
This morning my sister brought this old video to my attention. So if you’ve never seen or heard of Corb Lund, here’s a little tune for a rainy day (we’re having a million dollar rain right now and it sounds like my neighbour down the back alley is getting stuck). Enjoy!
