Although they each have successful solo careers, Colin Linden, Tom Wilson, and road warrior Stephen Fearing together are Blackie and The Rodeo Kings.
In 2020 the boys celebrate being together and making music for 25 years.
How did they kick off 2020?
Jan 4 they played The Ryman Theatre, home of The Grand Ol’ Opry.
Stephen Fearing packed his bags and went touring his solo album The Unconquerable Past!
Colin won a Grammy for Keb Mo’s Oklahoma, which Colin co-produced in his home studio in Nashville.
Just days ago Tom Wilson gets a Juno nomination for Lee Harvey Osmond.
And Blackie releases King of this Town.
The coming tour may take the entire year!
What started off in 1996 as a one-off tribute album in celebration of the music of Willie P Bennett has evolved into 25 years of Blackie and the Rodeo Kings.
Quite simply one of Canada’s finest bands. Ever!!
