Corb Lund has received multiple CCMA, Juno, and international award nominations and wins. A rural Albertan hailing from the foothills of the Rocky Mountains with a long family lineage of ranchers and rodeo people, Lund is about as authentic as they come.

Lund released his highly anticipated album Agricultural Tragic via New West Records on June 26th, 2020, his first album of original songs in five years, to much acclaim; the album debut inside the top 5 in both the US and Canada. It was named #7 on the No Depression Readers’ “50 Favorite Roots Music Albums of 2020” with the publication saying, "Eloquent and plainspoken, the excellent Agricultural Tragic finds the affable country rocker exploring his roots as a rancher and rodeo rider while striving to adapt this traditional identity to the challenging modern world... Corb Lund radiates authenticity from first note to last." The Associated Press said "The result is a distinctive sound — call it Country & Northwestern — that romances the region from which Lund hails,” American Songwriter stated, “The songs on Agricultural Tragic sparkle with a kind of authenticity that only someone who lives that life can project” while Saving Country Music said it was “...some of the most compelling country and western music you can find.” Stay tuned for more music imminently on the horizon for Lund.
