King Eddy Announces Return of Homegrown Country Series

The King Eddy is pleased to announce the return of the popular Homegrown Country Series, running every Saturday from July 24 to August 28.

The King Eddy was awarded the title of Country Club of the Year by the Canadian Country Music Association in 2020. The series serves as a gathering of the local Alberta country music community and spotlight for the province’s most sought-after country artists.

The Homegrown Country Series will happen at the historic venue every Saturday night from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm, starting on July 24. There is no cover for all shows. Seating will be first come, first served in the main floor dining room.

The King Eddy’s kitchen will be serving up an updated menu of comfort-food classics, sharable bites, vegetarian options, and a selection of local brews and custom cocktails with Happy Hour prices available from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm, so come down early to fuel up for the show.

Homegrown Country Series schedule:

  • July 24—Flaysher and Ryan Langlois
  • July 31—Michela Sheedy
  • August 7—Renegade Station
  • August 14—James Murdoch
  • August 28—The Prairie States

Taken from the last name of two small-town Albertan brothers, Flaysher is a Canadian country duo with some grit in their blood harmonies. Growing up in a blue-collar family, they spent weekends and summers on their dad’s job sites learning to work hard for what they wanted. On the way to work, they’d be singing along to classics such as Bob Seger, Bruce Springsteen, The Eagles, and Tim McGraw in the back of an old grey GMC work truck. The music spoke to them and soon they felt a calling to tell their own stories through their own music.

Red Deer country-rocker Ryan Langlois spent years as the lead singer and co-songwriter for the CCMA award-nominated group The Boom Chucka Boys before the band broke up. But his musical journey didn’t end there. As a solo artist, he landed on the Project WILD Top 3 in 2018, received two Alberta Country Music Awards nods that same year, and continues to be one to watch on the scene with music that draws from songwriting greats like John Prine and Johnny Cash.

If you are looking for soulful, sultry, country music; look no further. Okotoks born and raised Michela Sheedy represents a steely edge to the Canadian country music scene. She has graced some of the most esteemed stages in Alberta including performances at the legendary Ranchman’s, Cowboy’s Nightclub, Big Valley Jamboree, Country Thunder in Calgary and Florida, as well as the Coca-Cola Stage at the Calgary Stampede.

Real, raw, renegade country infused with harmonies and chemistry—that’s Renegade Station. Its name is symbolic of the group’s unconventional approach to music and sense of independence, injecting lushly produced and beautiful layered vocal harmonies that owe as much to Fleetwood Mac as they do to Lady Antebellum.

James Murdoch is known as a member of the award-winning country group The Dungarees. The band has taken their unique brand of country – blending the classic twang of a telecaster and infusing it with modern intensity and pop sensibility – and become one of Canada’s fastest rising stars.

Mixing the cadence and rhythms of ’60s soul and ’70s rock with modern country, The Prairie States was born out of a desire to put a fresh touch on a classic design. As recipients of the 2018 ACMA awards for Rising Star and Fan’s Choice, 2019 ACMA winners of Group/Duo and Video of the Year, as well as 1st place in the Project Wild Artist Development Program, it’s proof that this Edmonton-based band is moving in the right direction.
