While some countries are known for their products or politics, Canada is known for its songwriters (well, that plus snow and beavers). Our long line of songwriters includes names like Hank Snow, Gene MacLellan, Gordon Lightfoot, Ian & Sylvia, Neil Young, Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell, Ron Sexsmith. The list goes on and on.

We can now add Donovan Woods to that list, despite him being such a humble guy. But the proof is in the pudding: his songs are well crafted, beautiful. I dare you to listen to "They Don't Make Anything in the Town" and not get a tear in your eye. 

That song is part of this great First Play Live session that CBC Music recorded a few weeks back. Watch and listen here:
