As we speak, Lucky Tubb is in the studio recording his new album, and when I spoke to him at The Cash Bash, he gave me some hints of what he’s working on, including a duet with the legendary Wayne “The Train” Hancock.
“Me and Wayne Hancock are going into the studio next week and recording Hillbilly Fever, the Red Foley and Earnest Tubb cover of George Vaughn’s.”
Lucky has also been picked up by booking agent Gina Gallina; the elegant and talented Gina Gallina that is, that also happens to be Wayne Hancock’s wife and a player in the Camptown Ladies. Could this mean we might see some more collaboration between Wayne and Lucky in the future, and maybe a tour together? One can only hope.
Here’s what else Lucky had to say about the upcoming album:
“Natalie wrote a song called “Honky Tonkin’s All We Got,” were gonna do “Whose Gonna Take Your Garbage Out,” and we’re also gonna do “You’re a Real Good Friend.” So it’s gonna be a duet album, there’s gonna be a lot of old school country on it. We’ve got Roy Orbison’s reverb plate, we’ve got Porter Wagoner’s board in the studio.”
No word on a release date or title for the album as of yet. Stay tuned.
