Host Peter McCully chats with Barney Bentall, who is famous for his relationship with the band he formed in the mid-1980s, Legendary Hearts ( The Legendary Hearts) collaboration. The group released several albums and scored a string of hits, including “Something to Live For”.

‘ (lyrics) seems appropriate today, except for making $4 an hour, but someone living at home and just trying to find their own way and find their own way in the world. I hear people say it all the time, or when the audience is singing. They find it an inspiring sentiment,” Bentall said.

The Legendary Hearts disbanded in 1997, but Bentall continued to perform and record as a solo artist before becoming a partner at Cariboo Ranch in 1997.

“I never intended to give up music, but I thought, wouldn’t it be nice to be a cowboy? It ended up taking up too much of our time, but it was such a fun, rewarding experience. I thought I’d like to write about it, Or incorporate it into what I do,” Bentall told McCully.

“There are definitely a lot of songs that were influenced by that era. The ballad of old Tom Jones, the ballad of Johnny Hooker, just got on a horse and wrote this after I fell and broke a few ribs.

In 2009, Bentall joined Shari Ulrich and Tom Taylor (BTU), joining the duo the following year as a member of the bluegrass style band High Bar Gang.

Over the years, Bentall’s music has won numerous awards and honors, including multiple Juno Awards and a Canadian Country Music Association Award. He is also inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame and the British Columbia Entertainment Hall of Fame. His son, Dustin Bentoll, is also a professional musician, and the two perform together.

In addition to his musical career, Bentall is a committed philanthropist, involved in various charitable organizations and causes over the years. Last year’s annual Barney Bentall and Grand Cariboo Opry benefit concert raised over $500,000 for various charities.
