American Songwriter debuts Austin Lucas “Wrong Side of the Dream” featuring Lydia Loveless! Catch Austin at the Americana Music Fest in Nashville this September.
“I wrote ‘Wrong Side of the Dream’ with my dear friend Jodi James,” says Lucas. “She and I were definitely firing on all cylinders that day. There were more than a few moments where we just looked at each other, feeling that shared excitement of creating something that we both knew was beautiful. I’ll never forget the satisfaction I got when we sang the whole thing all the way through that first time.”
The collaboration with Loveless came about after Lucas reached out to the singer ahead of a recent Nashville show. “Lydia and I have known each other loosely for a while,” says Lucas. “We hung out a little here and there, and I’ve always been in awe of her voice, her songwriting and her presence. When the time came to record this album, I saw that she in Nashville playing a show. So I wrote her and asked if she was interested in singing a duet with me. She said yes and I was extremely pleased with the result.”
