Blackie and the Rodeo Kings are a Canadian alt-country group.  I enjoy them as the country is more of a country blues sound.  The group has been going strong since the early 1990’s and, in addition to the groups many record, has spawned many solo albums by its members, Colin Linden, Stephen Fearing and Tom Wilson.  A great group to follow as there is some exceptional talent here.  The song I have for you is a live version of “Got You Covered”, which was released as a single in 2011 and was featured on their album, “Kings and Queens”, also released in 2011.

  1. I think I’ve heard of these guys! I wonder if they toured down here?

  2. They sound pretty pure country.
    Off to check out the version with Roseanne Cash…

  3. The guy on the far right looks just to cool for school! It was interesting to watch his feet (which were practically the only thing moving on him) during the performance!
