Matt Masters Returns with 'All-Western Winners,' Canadian Dates
A press release describes the collection as "the blueprint for what is coming in Canadian country music," adding that it's "grabbed the sounds of the prairie by their roots and used the future as a fertilizer to grow a crop of Canadian songs that will serve to feed a generation."
While eight of the cuts on the collection take traditional cowboy songs into the 21st century, Masters tips his ten-gallon hat to the past via covers of Ray Wylie Hubbard's "Snake Farm" and Marty Robbins's "Don't Worry 'bout Me." You can download dusty first single "Highways" here.
All-Western Winners will be released by Saved By Radio on July 1. You can catch the country singer crooning the new cuts on a number of upcoming dates. See the full schedule below.
