    Jim Cuddy from Blue Rodeo plays your playlists, picks his favourite



    Blue Rodeo’s Jim Cuddy is a lot of things: an 11-time Juno award-winner, member of the Canadian Music Hall of Fame, and a lifetime runner, who met his wife while out on a run.

    “I was on the track stretching and this woman ran by me with this unbelievable rosy glow and I was smitten and smiled,” Cuddy says.

    In the next issue of iRun, Cuddy will be our featured musician and now’s your chance to have your Blue Rodeo-influenced playlist appear alongside his story. The tunes don’t have to all be by Jim Cuddy—he loves running to Hayden—but it’d be nice if you gave the man and his band some air time.

    Contest starts now. Ends Friday at 3 p.m. when we send all of the playlists to Jim to run to over the weekend in Calgary at the Juno Awards. Good luck!

    The winner will be announced Thursday April 7 in the afternoon.
