Welcome To The Country
Jim Cuddy and Greg Keelor are kind of like Canada’s McCartney and Lennon. They are a classic duo that are the heart of a band that has been making hits for decades. They can easily trade songwriting and singing duties back and forth, and they each interpret the Blue Rodeo style in their own subtle way.
The song “Never Too Late” is a Keelor creation, which he performed for the crew from CBC Music at the band’s famous woodshed studio.
Greg took us on a tour of the old country house, joking and adding colour commentary about the assortment of vintage objects, instruments and audio gear that pack the old house. There’s even a set of Beatles bobble head dolls on the windowsill.
After the tour, Greg and the band performed their song "Never Too Late" which débuts at number 20 on this weeks chart.
