Julian Austin sings the hits at Average Joes. Photo by Richard AmeryNew Brunswick born, Calgary based country singer Julian Austin returned to Average Joes for the upteenth time, March 26. Austin, who had a huge hit by reworking Steve Miller’s ‘Take the Money and Run,’  has just released a CD consisting of mostly countrified classic rock hits including Queen’s “Fat Bottomed Girls,” which makes an interesting country-rock song as he was playing it when I entered.
He also played some of his originals including ‘Forever Loving You’ ‘Harbour Town’ and  ‘Forever Loving You’ and ‘If Houston Doesn’t Want You,’ for which he shot a video for in Lethbridge and a touching tribute to soldiers.
He gave his hot  sounding band a break as he launched into an acoustic medley included everything from ‘Rhinestone Cowboy’ to Whitesnake’s ‘ Here I Go Again’ and a lot more.
