Corb Lund and The Hurtin’ Albertans – Horse Soldier! Horse Soldier! (2008)

It’s not often that a country band such as Corb Lund and the Hurtin’ Albertans has so much acclaim and success, yet is still relatively unknown in America’s country music scene.  With two gold records and numerous awards in their home country of Canada, Corb Lund and the Hurtin’ Albertans have set their sights on success in the good ole US of A. The Hurtin’ Albertans’ newest record, “Horse Soldier Horse Soldier” will certainly raise eyebrows both in Nashville and the rest of the country.

From the first track its evident that Corb Lund isn’t your typical country music songwriter. His songs have a sense of honesty and realness that could only come with the experiences of growing up on the plains of Alberta.  On this record Lund decided to focus on the most timeless subject of all, war. Don’t worry; this ain’t your typical hippy protest album as Corb focuses on his love for horses and how they both shaped the battlefield and himself over the past 300 years or so.

Not one to take himself too seriously Corb also shows his blue-collar roots/sense of humor in tunes like “Family Reunion” and “Hard On Equipment.”  In “Family Reunion” Lund proves that inbreeding isn’t confined to just the southern US, apparently “In Alberta, that’s cool” too.  Who thought southerners and Albertans had so much in common?

For a timeless treat that none of your friends in the US have heard, pick up a copy of Corb Lund and The Hurtin’ Albertan’s latest, “Horse Soldier! Horse Soldier!”
