Lukas is no stranger to the music industry. In fact, he had spent years as a member of his father’s Family Band, and he also has his own band called Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real.
His group has regularly been touring around the country while treating the world with their rock music.
Speaking about what sparked his passion for music, Lukas said to his father in a Rolling Stone interview, “When I was young, you were gone a lot and I figured the one thing that would be able to bring us together was if I learned how to play real well, and then we could go out on the road together and I could be around you more.”
It seems that Willie really had a great impact on his son as a musician and as a father.
“Always On My Mind” had been released more than three decades ago, but with Lukas’s version, it brought out memories of when the song was still fresh to everyone’s ears.
Willie must have been very proud of his son for doing such an excellent job as a budding artist.
This wouldn’t be the first time Lukas sang a cover of one of his father’s songs. For Willie’s 85th birthday, his son dedicated a performance just for him.
With his guitar, Lukas sang Willie’s “Bloody Mary Morning” at LAX and had it recorded on camera so his father could watch it even though he was far away.
Willie is lucky to have such a loving son like Lukas. As a father of seven, Willie always gave importance to family.
As for recent updates about him, the country star became quite controversial when he pledged to support the Texan Democrat nominee, Beto O’Rourke.
He announced that he was going to headline a big O’Rourke rally on September 29, and at the time, many of his fans made plans to boycott his music as a form of protest.
