Yellowhead To Yellowstone and Other Love Stories


No Video


A tough time for Ian Tyson yields an important new album of touching, heartfelt songs. Now, thanks to a stubborn virus, Tyson has what he calls “a new voice”— grainier, grittier, and different from his former sound. The last two years have been a time of dramatic change in the life of the iconic songwriter Ian Tyson. Going through a difficult divorce and another broken love affair, he faced his 75th birthday in September with a mixture of satisfaction and regret. Tyson’s new songs reflect these two difficult years as he faces the prospect of his senior years. “Growing old is not for wimps,” he says—and his legion of fans will understand and fight the future with him. This is his first albums of new songs since 2005.
