Exciting news...this week 'Fuel Fertilizer and Deere' has been released to Canadian Country Radio!  The third single off my 'Against the Grain' record, this song speaks to the 80 acre therapy found in a dusty cab with the diesel rumbling. When life gets a bit rough, some people go to counseling and some go to the field.  Call your local radio station and request this tractor anthem!!

Thank You!  What a crazy but rewarding two months! Joining in for the Alberta flood relief efforts, I met some incredible people while performing at numerous benefits.  I’ve received countless emails and comments from flood victims and volunteers, sharing their own heartbreaking, heartwarming, and inspirational stories from the disaster - thank you for the kind words and responses to “Hell or High Water”.  I hope life is returning to normal for most of you.


To my friends at Global TV (Calgary and Toronto), Charles Adler, Metro News and The Weather Network – thank you for featuring me and my tune “Hell or HighWater” on your programs.


As well, thanks to the folks attending our very first Benefit Concert in Olds AB, supporting  ‘Combines for Cures’ and ‘The Red Cross’.  I brought my old kitchen set to the TransCanada Theatre and just like in Wilf’s old farmhouse, there was a lot of laughs, some great music, and we raised over 10K for a couple of great charities!

As I always say -  fill up your coffee cup, have a look through the site, then send me note and say hello!!
