Off the bat we’d like to express a humble thanks to The Distillery and the Calgary Beer Core for giving us the nod as Best New Band last Saturday @ the 2011 CBC Awards. The golden beer bottle prize came with a bottle of whiskey and it took less than a day to crack it open and taste the joy! Frankly it’s a real honor and and it means a lot to us.

And while we’re expressing a bit of gratitude, the media has been kind to us this past month and our thanks go out to the good folks at CKUA (Allison), CBC, CJSW (Joan), CKXU (Gillian), SHAW-TV, FFWD, Beatroute (Brad), The Herald, and especially x92.9 (Fraser Tuff, you’re the man).

Shaw channel 10 has a spot with Matt and Ryan being aired right now on the teevee. CJSW 90.9 FM will be giving the band some love Monday the 3rd during the 10-11PM spot. And tune into x92.9 on Thursday the 6th for the 9-10AM show.

Things have been busy at Cowpuncher headquarters as we prepare to release our new album next week @ The Republik (Thurs Oct 6). We have brand new T-Shirts that are going to be unveiled this Saturday, October 1st, at Mikey’s Juke Joint. We have promised Mikey we will keep our shirts on whenever we play his bar. So rather than show our nipples, we now have a box of newly designed size small and size large T-Shirts to reveal!

We’re also looking forward to playing The Palomino this Friday with Chron Goblin. It’s their CD release!
