CBC Music First Play Live: Corb Lund, Things That Can’t Be Undone

The name Corb Lund sounds like it was hewn from the majestic Rocky Mountains and thrust out onto the Alberta prairie. Being a fourth-generation cattleman, Lund also has the aura of a man who’s comfortable on the ranch.

Some of the best songs on his new album, Things That Can’t Be Undone, capture the essence of the modern rancher. “S Lazy H” is a heartbreaking song about losing the family ranch, while “Weight of the Gun” takes an obvious metaphor to sublime corners of the acreage. The album closes with “Sunbeam,” a tribute to Lund’s young niece who tragically died recently. Lund was reluctant to include the tender tribute because it’s so personal, but thankfully he was convinced otherwise. Lund is a cowboy who knows his way around a metaphor.

Several weeks ago, Lund recorded a First Play Live session with us. Check out four new videos from the session below, with three more coming soon:
