Corb Lund's roots run as deep as those of the plants on the southern Alberta farm where he grew up. After spending some time at Grant MacEwan College in Edmonton studying guitar and bass, Lund toured the world as the bassist for metal outfit the Smalls. After that group disbanded in 2001, Lund spent the next few years writing music with the band that would come to be known as the Hurtin' Albertans: bassist Kurt Ciesla, drummer Brady Valgardson and multi-instrumentalist Grant Siemens.
Corb Lund's music is mined from the same vein of honky-tonk country as Dwight Yoakam and Hank Williams. His songs are stories that are sung with enough conviction that you can't help but believe, even if the tales seem a bit tall.
