Who Loves You Better
Who Loves You Better features Luke’s compositions along with choice arrangements of covers from artists including: Lyle Lovett, Buddy Miller, Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour, and Cole Porter.
Recorded at Zac Brown’s awesome Southern Ground Nashville, the LP was produced by Grammy nominee Bryan Sutton. Who Loves You Better showcases featured vocal performances by Sharon & Cheryl White, Maura O’Connell, Lee Ann Womack and Sara Jarosz complemented by a veritable A-List of Americana’s finest musicians including: Jerry Douglas, Noam Pikelny, Sam Bush, John Cowan, Sam Grisman, Bryan Sutton and many more!
Mandolin Wind is a stunningly beautiful musical story written by Rod Stewart that appeared on his classic 1971 LP “Every Picture Tells a Story” and, later as “B” side to the very rockin’ single “(I Know) I’m Losing You.” “Mandolin Wind” has been heavily praised by music critics worldwide.
Both the Everly Brothers and Bluegrass Master Earl Scruggs crafted their own covers of the tune, but thirty years have passed since any artist took up the challenge.
This inspired Luke and the team at Pure Music Nashville to create a contemporary arrangement and introduce more diverse instrumentation from the “perfect” original tune. Luke’s ever-present warm and engaging lead vocal complements stellar musicianship by Luke (fiddle), Cody Kilby (Guitars/Mandolin), Cellist Nat Smith, John Heithaus (Guitar and Bass), CJ Hillman (Mandolin and Dobro), Percussionist Pete Young and Backing VocalIst Miss Abby Brown.
