Stony Plain Records announces a September 15 release date for You Should Have Known, a digital single from legendary Canadian western singer-songwriter Ian Tyson. The song unapologetically celebrates the hard living, hard drinking, hard loving cowboy life.
Written by Nashville's Pat McLaughlin and featuring veteran session-man Charlie McCoy, the song yodels, slides and two-steps through the country music foothills, peaking with the raw emotions of a lifestyle that's increasingly rare.
Ian Tyson performed the song ahead of release as part of the Country Music Week in Saskatoon, Canada, at TCU Place on Friday Sept 8 hosted by CCMA. Ian celebrates his 84th birthday on September 25.
