17 March 2021 - Spirit of Canada - Home For A Rest

I cannot state this any better than FYI Music News did.

Record a track in the men’s room with nearly 50 of Canada’s most celebrated musicians? That is one for the history books.

And history they made as Alan Doyle, Jim Cuddy of Blue Rodeo, Sarah McLachlan, Ed Robertson of Barenaked Ladies, Spirit Kids Barney and Dustin Bentall, Colin James, Craig Northey and The Odds, Shari Ulrich, Jim Byrnes, Kendel Carson, Daniel Lapp, Spirit of the West with Cory Tetford, Shehab Illyas and Kris MacFarlane and many more of Canada’s top musicians came together to cover Spirit of the West’s “Home for a Rest” in honour and support of frontman John Mann and his battle with early-onset Alzheimer’s.

So, pretty much every Canadian musician you know got together to record a beautiful version of this Spirit of the West classic song and gave all the money to John Mann for his medical bills.  

The song was, of course, originally recorded live, but there was one more musician involved in that one.  

I'm not crying.  You're crying.
