Edmonton, AB – Country star Corb Lund will be performing the Canadian national anthem and singing his Oilers song called The Oil’s Back in Town this Thursday when the Oilers take on the Nashville Predators. The puck drops at 7:30pm, limited seats remain available at edmontonoilers.com to catch Corb Lund and the Oilers live.
"I wrote this song a few years ago because I love the Oilers, I'm really excited that the team wants to associate themselves and their Foundation with it,” said Corb Lund. “It makes me feel a bit like a kid again, frankly! I grew up watching them play and there's nothing like the Oilers energy that buzzes around Edmonton every winter. I'm thrilled to be part of it and glad it will help people here through the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation."
Corb’s Oilers song will be available for purchase exclusively on the iTunes Store starting today. Net proceeds from the song will be donated to the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation to be distributed to charitable organizations throughout Oil Country.
“The Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation is thrilled to welcome Corb to our game and have him perform his song for our fans,” said Natalie Minckler, EOCF’s Executive Director. “Corb’s generosity is overwhelming and we’re honoured to re-distribute these funds throughout Oil Country.”
