Listen to Leonard Sumner’s Manitoba version of country classic I’ve Been Everywhere

Hopping on a plane and taking a trip to another province or another country just for fun used to be something many of us took for granted.

Nearly 15 months into a pandemic, with travel a distant memory, it seems like a good time to celebrate great locales close to home.

So CBC Manitoba’s morning show, Information Radio, asked listeners to name places in Manitoba they’d visited.

They delivered, and singer-songwriter Leonard Sumner used those submissions to rewrite I’ve Been Everywhere — a country classic by Geoff Mack (popularized by artists like Johnny Cash and Stompin’ Tom Connors) .
