Growing up in a small town in Saskatchewan, Luke, J.J., Ty, Brock and Dusty — a.k.a. Hunter Brothers — cared about three things: hockey, music and farming. When they weren’t working the fields, the five siblings spent summers singing gospel across Canada and the U.S., while winters were for hockey, playing for the likes of Kelowna Rockets and, eventually, the Edmonton Oilers.
Since their explosive launch, the Hunter Brothers have been keeping the family tradition alive: hitting the road when they’re not riding the tractor, at times ballooning to as many as 21 family members in the same bus “That means a lot of colouring books, improv, dirty diapers and bathroom breaks on the side of the road,” they laugh. “It’s like a reality show on wheels, and each time a new kid gets added to the mix, the more interesting it becomes!”
This ‘reality show’ life has also proved fertile for comedic pay-dirt. Every season at harvest time, the brothers re-write well known songs with words that are relevant to farming culture, performing them over the brother’s CB radios. The fruits of this labour can be seen online where parodies, which include “The Combines Stuck” (a reworking of Corb Lund’s “Truck Got Stuck!”) and “Shade of Blue” (a fatherly take on the Ed Sheeran hit) have been viewed well over 3 million times organically. These videos along with the Brothers’ active presence on social media led to CCMA nominations in 2017 and 2018 for “Interactive Artist of The Year”.
We sure are looking forward to seeing them in June! You won’t want to miss this!
