"With a new generation of artists such as Sturgill Simpson and Chris Stapleton bringing an artistic depth back to country music, it stands to reason that Canadians would be involved in that movement as well. Zachary Lucky has indeed been a part of that conversation for some time, and his new album Everywhere A Man Can Be (out Oct. 7 on Wroxton Records/Fontana North) is a further testament." - FYI Music News If you folks are wondering what the shows across Canada will be like this month, this should give you an idea! Can't wait to get this band on the road. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=94gAt5-RQxo
Back in 2014, I was on my very first American tour. After a short stay in the high desert of Oregon and a dreadful two day long drive to Colorado I found myself in Pueblo Colorado. It reminded me of a scene from Breaking Bad or something out a movie. There was something about it that was unlike any place I’d been before. I was on tour with my friend John Statz and we were playing in the office of a local news paper - I remember it being a small but nice show, with people who wanted to hear the songs. I can’t remember exactly how it happened - whether it was during my set or while I was watching John play, but I can clearly remember that it was the first time I saw someone walk into a show with two guns hanging off their hips. He was tall, big - the kind of guy I wouldn’t want to get into a fist fight with. It didn’t help that he was clad in camo and had two guys standing by his side and that the three of them somewhat resembled a gang of sort. It turns out he liked my songs - I recall him saying “nice songs” as I starred at the ground and he walked away. At the end of the night we were killing time - I think someone ordered a pizza and a couple of us were drinking cheap beers by the storefront windows in the front of the street level office when we heard a huge bang - we looked out the front windows to discover that someone had driven their car ninety degrees, directly into the car that was parked in front of the building - almost like he did it on purpose. We ran outside and began to chase the car as he attempted to drive away. When his car failed he jumped out and started yelling at us - asking us to fight him, and I quote… “Feel my strength!”. It all moved so quickly, as we tried to calm him down. Someone called the police and the night faded into something along the lines of an episode of cops - forever burned into my memory as one of the craziest nights on tour. Thanks Pueblo for inspiring this song. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OVytdC_dMNE *Played with my ultra great band featuring Mitchell Thomson on bass, Kevin Neal on pedal steel, Will Fisher on drums and Dan Edmonds playing keys.
