Lukas Nelson + POTRwith special guest Ben Chapman
Grammy Award-winning artist Lukas Nelson and his longtime band, POTR, will continue their fall headline tour through December. The upcoming performances celebrate Nelson’s acclaimed new album, Sticks and Stones, which was released earlier this summer via 6ACE Records/Thirty Tigers (stream/purchase here). Self-produced by Nelson and POTR, Sticks and Stones is currently #3 on the Americana Albums charts and rising. With the record, Nelson also continues to garner success at radio as his single, “Sticks and Stones,” recently reached #1 on the Alt Country chart and #7 on the Americana Singles chart, while “More Than Friends,” featuring Lainey Wilson, reached #1 on the Americana Singles chart earlier this summer.
Written solely by Nelson, Sticks and Stones is filled with upbeat energy and a sense of fun, as he explores the universal human experiences of love, celebration, longing and humor, while also capturing the musical power and electricity of the band’s live performances. Of the record, Nelson reflects, “This album is about celebrating the human connection, joy and excitement. We went from quiet and introspective on A Few Stars Apart to something big and fun to really showcase the band’s talent and performance. You can listen to the album Sticks and Stones from start to finish and get the songs to dance to and then the quiet, poignant songs. To me, this album is the perfect setlist.”
Since his debut over a decade ago, Texas and Hawaii-based Nelson has played countless sold out shows and festivals and released seven studio albums to date including 2021’s A Few Stars Apart. Produced by Dave Cobb, the record spent seven weeks at #1 on the Americana Albums chart and received widespread acclaim with Rolling Stone declaring, “His best album yet…Nelson’s most compact, streamlined, and focused album,” while The Tennessean asserted, “a collection of lyrically stirring, musically multifarious and ultimately hopeful roots rock storytelling.”
Additionally, Nelson co-produced the music for 2018’s lauded A Star Is Born, in addition to appearing in the film, and went on to win a BAFTA Award for Best Original Music and a Grammy Award for Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media.
