Corb Lund & the Hurtin Albertans 

When: Sat., May 1, 9 p.m. 2010
Price: $10

Band name aside, Corb Lund and his crew aren't out to spread pain. If anyone's going to be bruised, it's Lund, a former steer rider from a family of rodeo people and ranchers. With that background—and, going back a few generations, you can add gamblers and miners—Lund was able to draw on family lore as fodder for his New West debut, Losin' Lately Gambler. The resulting mix of history, storytelling and prairie dust suggests Robert Earl Keen by way of Johnny Horton and Ian Tyson, and it's the stuff that'll earn you a shelf full of trophies from the Canadian Country Music Association. —Rick Cornell
