Corb Lund – Cabin Fever (New West Records)

Alberta’s Corb Lund has walked a line between country, blues and rock for six records now and on this, his seventh, he exemplifies my ideal country music star. Owing more to the spirit of guys like Johnny Cash, Dwight Yoakam and Marty Stuart, Lund thankfully steers clear of the glossy over-produced garbage that is deemed country music these days. If you’re hankerin’ for a helpin’ of real country music, I highly recommend checking out Cabin Fever for yourself.
