Austin Lucas’ release of Stay Reckless marks an important moment for this young troubadour who has amassed fans from Bloomington, IN to Prague. Inspired by X, producer Mark Nevers (Lambchop, Jason Isbell) captures an alt-country album brimming with punk rock energy and heartland earnestness. In 2007 Lucas began to entwine his punk rock nature with his bluegrass upbringing eventually collaborating and touring with Chuck Ragan of Hot Water Music and traveling the country on The Warped Tour, Willie Nelson’s Country Throwdown Tour and The Revival Tour. Being raised by accomplished bluegrass musician Bob Lucas and then embarking on a stripling discovery, Austin Lucas has come full circle with Stay Reckless, a record that embodies the work of an experienced troubadour.
