ROYALTY RECORDS & SONY MUSIC CANADA PRESENT
Blake Reid draws from his deep-seated farm roots to tell his story through music. Coming from a five-generation farm family, Reid has the ability to create diverse tracks while maintaining his innate, homegrown country style.
Consistent with the theme of the entire RUST album, “Cowboys Were Kings” is a look back to when life was simpler.
Co-written with Buddy Owens and Phil O’Donnell, “We wanted to capture the integrity of the Cowboy and those qualities of hard work and good love, and translate them in today’s life.” explains Blake Reid.
This connection to the rural lifestyle helped spur 4-H to partner with Blake for their centennial celebration. The former 4-H’er will be creating the centennial theme song that captures the spirit of 4-H.
Highlighting touchstone themes and pulling inspiration from stories told by 4-H members and alumni. Stay tuned for updates on the song and special performances by Blake throughout the anniversary year.”
As a native of Cremona, AB., Reid uses his rural roots as the driving inspiration for his song writing and is passionate about producing authentic country music and Rust reflects this. With his latest album, Rust, released on Royalty Records/Sony Music Canada, Blake Reid firmly establishes himself as a true workingman’s poet.
Produced by Phil O’Donnell in Nashville and featuring many of the city’s top session players, the album’s 3rd single, “Cowboys Were Kings” showcases Reid’s storytelling gifts. In celebrating the future, while honouring the past, Rust is undeniably Blake Reid’s finest work to date.
