Corb Lund, a real cowboy and Canada's No. 1 honky-tonker, has graduated from his usual Houston home away from home, the Mucky Duck. The bigger venue this time could be a residual bounce from the fact that Lund's latest New West album, Cabin Fever, is the No. 1 album in Canada right now. (Yes, the No. 1 album.) His acerbic humor, as dry as the Alberta air, has pushed single "The Gothest Girl I Can" into a minor hit in U.S. alt-country circles.
