Blue Rodeo released a new album, Many a Mile, in May. You can watch the band members discuss the making of the record on FOX News Radio’s The Rosenberg Report.
On what being part of the performing industry means:
Randy Bachman: I think we’ve just always had fun. I don’t know if we wanted to get a label. I’m from a very small town so a lot of the excitement was fun to us when we first started and so it is always fun to be in that lifestyle. I don’t know that anybody has any regrets about taking this path. I guess I’m glad it’s working. That’s been the thing that I like about it.
On performing new album:
Kerry Reid: The writing was the biggest adventure on this album. I’m glad I got to write with Randy and Dave. We’ve gotten to write together a lot over the years and have a really good friendship so it’s just sort of a nice thing to explore your musical side when you can actually be in the studio with someone else. It has been really wonderful.
On band members being professional athletes:
Bachman: We’ve been driven as professional athletes. It’s really not that different. I guess what keeps us going is that we’re taking it for granted in our lives but most of our families are working and we’re hanging out and we like being around people who are doing the same things that we’re doing. I guess it was a good thing for our parents to be supportive. It was OK for us to follow what we were doing. It was pretty fun. We’re both probably happy with how things have worked out with our careers as well. I think we’re both still hanging out on a week to week basis. We’ll play with Dave. We do a show together every couple of months that sort of keeps it going.
On collaborating with Lady Antebellum:
Bachman: A really good example was the Lady Antebellum album which I didn’t play on because I had to just finish this record that I was working on and they actually put their stuff on this album which was a little unorthodox, although they’re the hardest working act in town.
