Country legends DOC WALKER released their ninth studio album “Weathervane” March 31, 2017. This is the album the band always wanted to make. They do not set out in a specific direction when writing for an album. Rather, much like a weathervane, they write, write, and re-write, holding a licked finger to the wind to see if they are on the right track. ‘“Weathervane” is, to me, a reflection of the amazingly crazy life I've lived. I've seen Canada from coast to coast many times staring out the windows of vans, old buses, new buses, trains and planes, and every time I'm shocked by the beauty of our country, but my heart has always been in the Prairies,” says lead singer, Chris Thorsteinson. The first single, “Heart of the Heartland”, pays homage to small town pride across the country. the song was inspired by hometown pride, fond memories of youth and continuing to find new inspiration in one's roots, in this case, Portage la Prairie, Manitoba and Winnipeg, which has long been home for bandmates Dave Wasyliw and Chris Thorsteinson. “‘Heart of the Heartland’ is about all of the lives that were lived, and all of the memories that were created in a now dying town; one man's connection to the broken concrete and dilapidated structures that harbour the ghosts of his entire childhood, and his unshakable hometown pride”, says bandmate Dave Wasyliw. With over 20 Top 10 singles in total, DOC WALKER is one of the most recognized Canadian country acts of the past two decades. The group has received multiple Canadian Country Music Awards, including Fans' Choice (2008), Group or Duo of the Year (2002, 2003, 2004, 2008, 2009, 2010), CMT Video of the Year (2008), Single of the Year (2008), and Country Music Program or Special of the Year. In addition, DOC WALKER has been nominated for several JUNO Awards for Country Album of the Year, including a win for the album “Beautiful Life” (2009).
