Registrato agli RCA Studio di Nashville con il produttore vincitore di un Grammy Award, Dave Cobb,
il nuovo album di Colter Wall, che uscirà il prossimo 12 ottobre, è composto da 11 brani, incluso il primo singolo’Plain to See Plainsman’. Oltre a sette brani originali l’album include anche splendide versioni riarrangiate da Colter Wall stesso di ‘Wild Dogs’ di Billy Don Burns, ‘Calgary Round-Up’ di Wilf Carter e due brani della tradizione cowboy, ‘Night Herding Song’ e ‘Tying Knots in the Devil’s Tail’.
Oltre a Wall l’album è stato registrato da Cobb (acoustic guitar), Lloyd Green (pedal steel), Chris Powell (drums, spoons), Jason Simpson (bass), Mickey Raphael (harmonica), Blake Berglund (vocals) e Corb Lund (vocals).
“One thing I’ve noticed over the last few years, in the United States and playing in Europe,
is that people all over the world really don’t know much about Canada at all…When you talk about Saskatchewan, people really have no idea. Part of it is because there are so few people there. It’s an empty place—it makes sense that people don’t know much about it. But that’s my home, so naturally I’m passionate about it. With this record, I really wanted people to look at our Western heritage and our culture”.
