Good old Winnie was cruising down the TransCan bound for Brandon, MB when things took a turn for the worst. A sudden drop in oil pressure, and a complete loss of power rendered her lifeless as Brad steered her to the shoulder, where she would shudder and lay down to rest. They would not make it to the show tonight.
Winnie has travelled all over Canada and the United States as her faithful owners, Brad and Amy (a husband and wife band known as Winnie Brave ) played country music in towns and cities along the way. Born in 1976 in the golden age of American big-blocks, she's not an overly big girl, measuring nearly 23' feet in length, but what she lacks in modern amenities, she makes up for in spades with her vintage styling and big heart. You see, Brad and Amy saw something special in the old girl and spent many years helping her get mechanically healthy and polishing up her interior making her a comfortable and finely-appointed home.
On the night of the unfortunate engine failure, Brad and Amy were heartbroken. Winnie was not just a vehicle, she was a member of the family and it was inconceivable that their lives could go on without her.
With no other options and a dent in their pride, Brad and Amy have started this fundraiser. They want nothing else than to have their best friend back in the road, rolling down the TransCan in the warm prairie winds. This fundraiser is for Winnie's new heart (a new engine for the old girl).
Winnie Brave was on their first leg of their album release tour heading across Canada, after nearly one year of hard work and many dollars spent to create the new record. As an extra Thank You for your donation of $15 or more, Brad and Amy will send you a free copy of the new album (digital or CD) - simply email your address or email address and they'll get it to you.
