LUCKY TUBB & The Modern Day Troubadours
Nephew of country icon Ernest Tubb, Lucky's style is reminiscent to the raw, original country and honky tonk styles of the earliest Nashville artists. After touring as opening act for Dwight Yoakam, Ray Price, and Hank III, Tubb & the Modern Day Troubadors showcase their strong traditional influences that have run in the family for years.
Lucky Tubb was born in Fort Worth Texas in 1971. He was raised, in part, by his grandparents CR and Margie Tubb. CR was brother to Country Music Legend Ernest Tubb. Lucky would soon become integral to the country music dynasty he was born into. Tubb learned to play the guitar at the age of seventeen while practicing his craft and learning to reflect and write about his life experiences in a true to life fashion.
Lucky’s debut album "Generations", released in 2002, is vintage style country with a distinct twang. The album takes on a energetic up tempo approach to country / blues. Audiences of all ages and walks are captivated by the haunting melodies in all time favorites Lonesome Cowboy Blues and On That Road. The album reached #1 on True Country charts for three weeks and remained there for a couple of months to come.
Lucky’s second album and most popular to date is "Damn the Luck". Lucky here embraces a true respect for his family and their legacy while forging his own niche into country music. The album brightens up and takes on a lighter approach to tales not so tall with Huntsville. Upbeat and raw rockabilly rhythms can also be heard as Lucky invokes melodies written and recoded in the 1950’s by other uncles of the Tubb clan, X Lincoln and Glenn Douglas Tubb. In the spirit of preserving the timeless sound, Lucky and his band have done all recording on reel to reel tapes and without the use of computers or overdubbing.

“These songs bring about images of smoke-filled honky-tonks, fallen angels, gun-toting rounders, hard drinkin’ backsliders, and hopelessly scarred romantics.” (R. Simeon Franks)
