Saskatchewan cowboy Blake Berglund’s musical history is truly something impressive. As much as his accolades speak volumes – nominations and wins at the Mayors Arts Awards, SCMA’s, and Independent Music Awards – it’s his work ethic and unique carving of a genre that have people spreading his name and backing his abilities. Blake called in to CFMU in May to talk with DJ Aerlie Wild about his new live record “Jasper” and to share 5 of his favourite songs:
Ray Charles – Bye Bye Love – Modern Sounds In Country & Western Music
Kris Kristofferson – Border Lord – Border Lord
Jamey Johnson – Macon – The Guitar Song
Fred Eaglesmith – Katie – 6 Volts
Mavis Staples – Can You Get To That – One True Vine
