Tim Hus

Meet Tim Hus: Alberta song-maker and storyteller telling the truth about driving trucks, hunting dogs, fishing for bass, potash mining and the Church of Country Music.

In Alberta, Tim Hus is a star. Here he is, on the cover of Western Star, his latest album for Stony Plain, wrapped in a leather coat with wolf fur trim. Politically correct? Maybe not, but Tim’s a guy who tells it like it is. As straight-up as a Tim Horton’s doubledouble, he’s been a beer truck driver, a sawhand, a salmon farmer, a tree planter, a cabinetmaker and a well driller, and he’s written songs about most of it.

Mentored by the late Stompin’ Tom Connors (he’s done two national tours as Tom’s opening artist and backup band) Tim Hus proudly carries on the tradition of writing songs about working Canadians and Canada's rich history. With his Canadiana travelin' band, he brings his music to small town community halls, major international festivals, and just about every truck stop in between.

Tim Hus has been doing this for well over 10 years — Western Star is his fourth album of original songs, and his third for Stony Plain. Recorded in Nashville, Tim had ace producer and session drummer Harry Stinson in his corner for the new recording. Harry said, “Tim Hus is a great Canadian song-slinger. His pen can hit the bulls eye of any subject he chooses. Songs of place, songs of people, songs of history. Tim Hus will tell you all about it and entertain you at the same time.”

Stinson, who has worked with dozens of major artists, including Steve Earle, Trisha Yearwood, Ian Tyson and Corb Lund, brought in an A-list of veteran musicians. Collectively, the players on Western Star have played, toured or recorded with Marty Stuart, George Jones, Porter Wagoner, Lynn Anderson, Rodney Crowell and Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs among dozens of others. One of the many distinguished players was steel guitarist Kayton Roberts, who was a member of Hank Snow’s legendary Rainbow Ranch Boys.

Stinson and Tim Hus chose the musicians not only to add touches to the songs, but also to create a connection to the traditions and origins of roots and country music while tipping the hat to those who have traveled this road before him.

Musically, this is country with an edge, written and sung and performed with integrity and heart. No false notes, no pretending, no “act” — this is the real thing. Tim Hus really is a member in good standing of the Church of Country Music.

So get hold of a copy of Western Star. Better yet, go to see him when he plays in your area. He’s traveled a lot of miles, and he’s probably on his way to wherever you are.
