Got this news today while tagging a couple new calves. Deadwood was and still is my favourite show/series I’ve ever watched. The writing was always so brilliant, as was the acting. I couldn’t be happier about having one of my tunes in the trailer for the upcoming movie! Thanks HBO. This day just keeps getting better!
Always good to be home for a spell. We’ve got two new little fellas on the ground so far, no pulling, no fuss! Happy spring to all you folks out there.
While we were at the national cowboy poetry gathering, I caught up with @andyhedgesmusic and had a good chat about Saskatchewan, cowboy music, and all manner of things. Andy’s podcast has become one of my personal favourites and I’d highly recommend his previous episodes talking to Gary McMahan, Dave Stamey, and Mike Beck. Link to this one is in my bio!
Honoured to be doing these next few shows with Billy Don Burns. “He’s got a song and a friend for every mile behind him.”
Last year @littlejackfilms and I set out to shoot the album cover for “Songs of the Plains.” We sallied forth through the coulees and cut banks south of the Saskatchewan river not far from Stewart Valley, SK. These shots didn’t make the cut but they sure are beauties! And yes, we do have cactuses up there believe it or not.
The famous Charles M. Russell spent a good chunk of time in Saskatchewan and Alberta and evidently was a big fan of the Mounties during their early days on the Canadian frontier. This one’s called “When Law Dulls the Edge of Chance.”
Thrilled to be a part of this lineup! Billy Joe, Johnny Bush and @raywylie should be way higher on the billing if you ask me.
Just three shows left on our European tour! Thanks to everyone for coming out and supporting the boys and I on this wild run. See ya tonight in Oslo! Photo: @annadrvnik
Bronc riding in my hometown of Swift Current, Saskatchewan back in 1938. Stole this from @coyotefrontier. See his page for all things Western Canadian.
Missing home a little extra today. As we travel across Europe, I can’t help but reflect on how much my music has shifted and grown over the years and it all comes back to home. This strange swathe of prairie has proven my greatest inspiration time and time again. Soon enough I’ll be back under big skies with a new batch of spring calves to keep from keeling over. Until then I’ll just continue singing about it. Ps. The little fella next to me is my nephew Lane and he’s 100% a better hand than me.
