One of the great things about living in Nashville is having instant access (every night if you want it) to quality live music. Another great thing about living in Nashville is that unless you live under a rock, there's a good chance that at least one of the folks playing some of that awesome music happen to be friends of yours.
So with that being said, I want to introduce you to Austin Lucas. If you have any interest in Bluegrass or Americana, you may have heard his name already, and if not, you probably will. Austin is a buddy of mine who I actually met AFTER I was a fan. (Let me tell ya, nothing will make you feel like more of a creepster than admitting to someone that you've been following them on Twitter and Instagram for a year before you even met them. (Thus are the times.) Regardless, give him a listen. Under those tattoos is the voice of a little angel baby, and dude can play the hell out of a guitar. He just got off of tour with Willie Nelson and is currently touring to promote his upcoming album, which he is set to record with Glossary (another local kick-ass band) in December. Check out his website here: http://www.austinlucasmusic.com/
Give him a listen, and if you like, check out his Kickstarter page, and help him out to get this record made. You can even get a sweet karaoke CD in the process. I've seen the dude belt out some Bryan Adams... you don't want to miss out on that.
Here's the kickstarter promo:
