Corb Lund and the Hurtin’ Albertans are a Canadian country music band, formerly known as the Corb Lund Band.
Corb Lund, the lead singer, grew up in Southern Alberta living on his family’s farm and ranches near Taber, Cardston and Rosemary. He is known for his Albertan Pride. Lund left his hometown of Taber and moved to Edmonton, where he enrolled in the Grant MacEwan College to study jazz guitar and bass.
Lund was a founding member of The Smalls, who sold over 35,000 albums over a twelve-year span, all released independently. Lund and the Smalls toured extensively in Canada, the United States and Europe, including a stint in Bosnia, Slovenia and the Czech Republic. The band retired in the fall of 2001, but reunited in 2014 for a string of shows, the so-called “Slight Return” tour.
