For his 18th album, Blue Highways, Colin pays tribute to some of his long time blues idols including Howlin’ Wolf, Jimmy Reed, Freddie King, Jr. Wells & Buddy Guy, Peter Green, Robert Johnson and William Bell to name a few.  In the spring of 2015 after wrapping up his Hearts on Fire Tour, Colin was loving playing with his band and really happy with the sound they had created on stage.  What better time to make a record!  Especially the record Colin had been itching to make for years – a collection of some of his favourite blues tracks.  In less than a week Colin was recording in The Warehouse Studios in Vancouver and in just two days, Blue Highways was born.
