Sometimes revolutions begin quietly.
In 1988, Cowboy Junkies proved that there was an audience waiting for something quiet, beautiful and reflective. The Trinity Session was like a whisper that cut through the noise — and it was compelling. It stood out in the midst of the flash and bombast that came to define the late 80’s. The now classic recording combined folk, blues and rock in a way that had never been heard before and went on to sell more than a million copies.
With Cowboy Junkies’ new album, All That Reckoning, the band once again gently shakes the listener to wake up. Whether commenting on the fragile state of the world or on personal relationships, this new collection of songs encourages the listener to take notice. It also may be the most powerful album Cowboy Junkies have yet recorded.
While the music is characteristically easy to listen to, the songs on “All That Reckoning” are visceral. In true Junkies fashion, the gentleness is juxtaposed with rock that can be jarring.
“It’s a deeper and a more complete record than we’ve ever done before,” says Michael. “We’ve always tried to make records that are relevant to who we are as people. … These songs are about reckoning on a personal level and reckoning on a political level. So much is going on around us right now and nobody knows where it’s going to end up.”
Canadian Music for the win! 🇨🇦
Folk, rock, blues combining into a revolutionary sound to be playing @ one of my favorite venues, Revolution Hall in Portland, Oregon. 🎶🎶🎵🎵🎶💜
This would be perfect timing for our 27th anniversary, and Ring on the Sill was our first song! Hope we win!
Always wanted to see The Cowboy Junkies!!! Their music fits my current mood!
Political and personal level for sure. Would love to go.
I kissed a cute guy from college with CBs playing. 23 years later, he’s my husband
I’d love to see Cowboy Junkies for free! They opened for John Prine at one of my first shows ever when I was like 12. It was the best.
To see the Cowboy Junkies would be a dream come true!
Loved them then & still love em’ now!!
Long time since I’ve seen them – would love to bring my wife!
My partner and I love them so much. Would be amazing to see them!
One of my favorites… I remember seeing them for the 1st time on MTV’s Post Modern back in the late 80s and I instantly fell for Margo’s voice. Would love these tickets. ❤❤❤
Have enjoyed their music for many years. Thanks
I’m a Cowboy Junkie, Junkie.
I saw the Junkie’s in St. Louis in 1989 on their 1st major US tour, but never had an opportunity to see them again, so I would love to give my wife the pleasure of seeing them for the first time.
If they can get back out there, I sure can
OH MY GAWwwwwwd!!!! The soundtrack of my youth!!!!!! I could SO use these!! What a Grand Giveaway!!!! I haven’t seen a show since January of 2019….this would be such a great night to bring me back to it!!
Would live to see them live
After being cooped up and isolated for a couple years I would absolutely LOVE to go see a live rock show! Blues rock would be all the better and more relevant! Bonus: I have yet to see a show at the Revolution Hall! Please pick me to see the Cowboy Junkies!
If they are cowboy junkies why isnt anyone wearing a cowboy hat? Haha. Want to see them.
My sister and I would love to attend! CJ’s are always a staple on our road trips together.
Also, it’s my birthday week!!
I actually still play their CDs! Love them to this day…
Who won? So disappointed because don’t think I did.
