The original artist is a Canadian country-folk-rock legend. And at 79 years old, the sun has not gone down on his carefree highway. His music is often covered by others, including the track today, which is dedicated to a cold and dark evening. It’s not a Christmas song, but it works perfectly for this time of year.

Especially the version by the Shadow artist, a fellow Canadian, and she adds some festive percussion. The Shadow artist also pops up on your television frequently asking for your help in Public Service Announcements, especially with cute puppies.

The 5 O’Clock Shadow is presented by Flying Dog Brewery.
