We are so excited to be on CBC’s new show Cover Me Canada! Every week, we’re given an iconic Canadian song that we need to create our own original version of. So far, we’ve done Trooper’s “Raise a Little Hell” and The Guess Who’s “American Woman.” Follow the links below to check out all the versions of us playing them live on Cover Me Canada, as well as the studio recordings done throughout the weeks with Hawksley Workman and Gavin Brown respectively.
While we’re on the show, social interactions are incredible important. Please make sure to follow us on twitter @cmc_whosarmy, and like our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/cmcwhosarmy. Retweets, likes, and YouTube vids all count towards us winning immunity for the week, so be sure to get online and support us! Also, voting is a big part of this whole thing.

Thanks so much! We look forward to playing for you live this Sunday at 9pm on CBC!
