Corb Lund Brings Calm Before the Storm in Nashville
2016 has been full of everything one could imagine. Celebrity deaths by the truck load, natural disasters of biblical proportion and a presidential election that was equal parts Shakespearian play and a really really bad sci-fi film.
It only seemed fitting, then, to have an iconic Canadian musician take the stage in Nashville on Election Night. Corb Lund, put on what could only be described as a 45 minute, 13 song love fest. Songs ranging from “Dig Gravedigger Dig,” “This Is My Prairie,” and “Student Visas.” Lund’s storytelling and guitar playing proved yet again he is one of the most underappreciated artists south of the 49th parallel.
Lund broke script and said, “I was going to talk about the election, but I figured you guys had enough on your mind, so I’ll just sing my songs.”
His rendition of “S Lazy H,” brought the intimate crowd of 100 at The Basement to their feet. This may be the perfect song. “One Left In The Chamber,” was played with such passion, such pain that you truly were living the song as he played it.
He ended his set with a unique, Marty Robbinsesque song, “Albino Woman.” The crowd laughed and loved it, knowing when they got home, history would be made.
From the bottoms of our hearts Mr Lund, thank you!
