Aaron Lee Tasjan is a songwriter first and foremost whose typical sound is a massive, cosmic country bottled into a potent concentrate. Lilly Hiatt, an East Nashville rabble-rouser, finds the sweet spot between melancholy and peace with no shortage of bite. Together, their music crafts a sort of dance, a stomping swing led equally from both sides of a locked gaze. The Luck Sessions represent a partnership between Third Man Records in Nashville, TN, and the Luck Reunion Festival on the outskirts of Austin, TX, set on Willie Nelson's Ranch. Both teams collaborated with the hope of bringing interesting musicians together that maybe had disparate styles, yet a mutual appreciation for American music, to see what they would come up with on the spot, in a relaxed but immediate recording atmosphere. We organized two sessions a day with each duo doing one or two takes per song. The Luck Sessions took place during Nashville's annual Americana Fest. Together with the help of the festival curators, we chose from a pool of local artists and acts passing through. It allowed collaborations to showcase not only legacy artists in the world of Americana, veterans of the craft, but an abundance of up-and-comers. We know you'll enjoy these songs as much we do - they're sure to please.
