Losin' Lately Gambler
3.  Losin' Lately Gambler by Corb Lund
The list author says:
  "Canadian (real) cowboy plays a unique brand of music. It's country with tinges of rock/punk attitude yet it's from a youngster who hangs out with Ramblin' Jack and oldtimers who help keep him honest. He's also one hell of a story-teller. One of the best out today. There's a limited edition dvd combo. Grab it if you can."
