To compose the songs for his terrific 2012 release, Corb Lund hunkered down in the remote cabin he built with his girlfriend and favorite uncle in rural Alberta. Just as the cabin was finished, his relationship crumbled and his uncle passed away. Following weeks alone there, "Cabin Fever" was born. The songs range from rockabilly to Western swing, cowboy balladry to country-rock. And, of course, the occasional yodel. It was a Top 100 pick among WNCW listeners, and the #1 pick for Joe Kendrick, who will interview the band in Studio B! They play Charlotte, Greenville and Asheville this week.
