IAN TYSON JOINS YOU FOR CHRISTMAS IN THE FOOTHILLS
Ever wonder what it's like at Ian Tyson's ranch in the foothills of the blue Canadian Rockies at Longview, Alberta, in the dead of winter at Christmas time?
Here are classic Ian Tyson lyrics you haven't heard till now. "Christmas in the Foothills" was created by Sharon Anderson by incorporating Ian Tyson lyrics that he sent Anderson in a Christmas greeting (see above). All proceeds from downloads of this song will be his Christmas gift: a huge wish from us all for his health and happiness this Christmas season and in the year to come.
Meanwhile, Craig MacInnis, ex-journalist for the Calgary Sun, writes about how Ian Tyson impacted his life and career. "I recall sitting near the back of the hall and feeling a strange homesickness slide over me." Read MacInnis' full story.
