Lucky Tubb & The Modern Day Troubadours
Saturday, July 8 at 10:30 p.m.
If Ernest Tubb is the king of honky tonk music, then Lucky Tubb is surely the prince. Choosing to carry out the legacy of his great uncle, Lucky’s style is reminiscent to the raw and original country style of the earliest Nashville artists—before music row forgot its heritage. Lucky Tubb’s album “Generations” was recorded in January 2003, after a devastating Christmas Eve house fire burned all of his belongings. Through generous donations he was able to re-establish equipment and love from the music community and carry on, never breaking stride and never retreating.
Starting out playing coffee shops for tips with only a snare drummer, but he quickly moved up the ranks of the Texas music scene, ultimately opening for country music cornerstones such as Ernest Tubb’s old pal, Ray Price, and country superstar Dwight Yoakum. In the early days, despite poor management, heavy drinking and a quick temper, Lucky has grown to realize the responsibilities bestowed upon him through his heritage. Bottom line, Lucky Tubb is the real deal. People will always like good honky-tonk music and will for generations to come.
