CD REVIEW BY JOHN McLAUGHLIN

TIM HUS: Alberta Crude (www.timhus.ca)

Calgary’s Tim Hus is the welcome antithesis of all those airbrushed Nashville stars, a guy who was born with a toothpick in his mouth and dirt under his nails. Whether he’s singing about the 18-point elk rack above the door in “Hotel & Saloon,” driving a Freightliner down the Yellowhead in “Longest Stretch of Road” or the vintage tractor that “smells like a john and runs like a deer” in Dangerous Dave’s Tractor Show,” he’s all-Canadian and authentic as beer breath on a Sunday morning. Cross Corb Lund with Stompin’ Tom and you’ve got Hus in your sights. He’s very good.
Rating 4/5
