Published Aug 04, 2015Saskatchewan sweethearts Belle Plaine and Blake Berglund have teamed up to release a 7-inch single paying homage to their fellow songwriter Zachary Lucky, but before it officially arrives next month, Exclaim! has got the premiere of the prairie pair's video for "Town to Town."
The single's A-side, "Town to Town" was originally penned by Lucky and will be joined on the flip side by Lucky's home province tribute "Saskatchewan." Filling out the duo's sound on the new single are Plaine's regular backers Jeremy Sauer on keys and Elizabeth Curry on bass, as well as Berglund's go-to guys Steve Leidal on drums and Bryce Lewis on electric guitar. The result is a twangy ode to the musicians' country home that celebrates the musical community that they're a part of.
"It was an opportunity to unite our bands, to draw attention Zachary's music, and to create a recording that celebrated the talent within our province," said Plaine in a press release. "I wanted the songs to resonate locally first, and then to bring a spotlight to the exceptional artists that live here."
Plaine and Berglund will be on the road together into autumn, and you can see their upcoming dates listed below. Their final show at Regina's The Artesian will even feature a special appearance from Lucky himself.
