EDITORS’ NOTES

Absence makes the heart grow fonder, and Saskatchewan-born singer-songwriter Colter Wall learned the feeling well after spending so much time on the road. “Wherever I wander, wherever I stray/The rustle of the wheat fields starts calling my name,” he sings on “Plain to See Plainsman,” his rich baritone echoing the song’s strolling bassline. His sophomore album spins that homesickness into tribute. Produced by Nashville’s Dave Cobb, and featuring harmonica from Willie Nelson’s longtime collaborator Mickey Raphael and pedal steel guitar from Lloyd Green, Songs of the Plains situates the Canadian troubadour alongside Southern brethren like Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson, and Chris Stapleton. As Wall tells it, Western isn’t a direction so much as a state of mind.

A Very Pleasant Surprise

While in Nashville on a family vacation I thought we needed a little country to help the family get in the country mood. By pure random chance I picked this album from iTunes. It has now been 3.5 months and still cannot get enough of this album. What an amazing singer songwriter, thanks for getting us into folk country.

Just keeps on getting better!

From his first to his second album the talent and style keep on developing and growing. His voice is incredible and storytelling ability gets better and better. He’s already rocking the country world and he’s ready for it.

Songs of the Plains

Can't understand the nay sayers. A great album, genuine real music not the fluff that most country music is today.
