Canadian Colter Wall’s tour stops in Walker Theatre

- STAFF REPORT

When Colter Wall wanted to make an album about his Canadian home, he turned to Dave Cobb in Nashville to help him tell the stories of Saskatchew­an, Canada. That Cobb-produced album, “Songs of the Plains,” was released in October 2018.

But local fans can hear Wall sing its tracks live when he stops in Walker Theatre on Friday night, Dec. 6, as part of his “Songs of the Plains” tours.

Here are five things you might want to know about this up-and-coming artist:

› Rolling Stone named Wall to its 10 New Country Artists You Need to Know list in November 2016.

› His newest music is a 7-inch vinyl record,

“Colter Wall and the Scary Prairie Boys,” released in September.

› On Nov. 16, he appeared with Kane Brown on Austin City Limits as part of a show themed “the best of next-generation country music.”

› “Songs of the Plains” opens with “Plain to See Plainsman.” This autobiogra­phical track lists some of the kinds of people

“Night Herding Song.” Because the song is sung a cappella with a campfire vibe, Wall went to Dave Cobb’s house, started a fire in the outdoor fireplace and recorded it on the spot.
