"When I get back to the bottom of the bottle that I'm drinkin', I said son, it's a honky tonker's life for me"

Lucky Tubb and the Modern Day Troubadours

Lucky Tubb has taken it upon himself to preserve his family’s musical heritage and does so with reverence and pride.
Tubb is the great nephew of the legendary honky tonk singer, Ernest Tubb.
The Modern Day Troubadours are Tubb on vocals and rhythm guitar, Natalie Page Monson on fiddle and harmony vocals, Jericho Renshaw on lead guitar, Casey Gill on slap bass and Steve England on pedal steel, dobro and mandolin.The band plays with freshness and urgency. Moaning steel guitar, lonesome mandolin, and sad sweeping fiddle lines are all seamlessly woven into their honky tonk sound.

Lucky won’t be a darling of the Nashville scene.He comes from the Wayne Hancock, Hank III school of hillbilly music, happy to tour the bye-roads of small town America in the tradition of the likes of Tubb and Bill Monroe.

Lucky and the band are currently on tour, opening for Hank Williams III.
