Meet Willie Nelson’s Son Lukas Who Inherited His Talent and Wrote Songs for ‘A Star Is Born’

The 30-year-old singer and songwriter, Lukas Nelson, was born in Texas and was already an accomplished musician by the age of 13. 

He started playing guitar from an early age in an attempt to bond with his father, acclaimed singer and activist Willie Nelson

Lukas Nelson would often tour with his father as a rhythm guitarist. To this day, he still opens for Willie and regularly performs alongside his father's band. 

LUKAS WILSON'S STAR IS RISING

Lukas cemented his career in 2018 when actor Bradley Cooper approached the muso for his much-anticipated directorial debut, "A Star Is Born."

When asked what it was like working with Cooper and Lady Gaga, Lukas told Billboard that Cooper "is a pretty serious actor, but in a level-headed way." He added: 

"[Lady Gaga is] quite a performer. She’s an actress; she’s just an entertainer, you know? When we were writing together, we definitely saw eye-to-eye."

Lukas joked that they finished each other's sentences and that a beautiful friendship was borne out of a beautiful collaboration. 

TALENT RUNS IN THE FAMILY

He would often tour with his father as a rhythm guitarist. To this day, he still opens for Willie and regularly performs alongside his father's band. 

He learned stagecraft from a young age, a skill essential to his career as a country singer. In 2008, Lukas formed the band "Promise Of The Real."

Lukas describes his preferred subgenre as "cowboy hippie surf rock," and his primary influencers are Jimi Hendrix, Neil Young and his father. 

Father and son also collaborated in a 2012 album titled "Heroes." Three years later, Lukas also collaborated with Neil Young on his album "The Monsanto Years." 

IN THE PIPELINE

Lukas said he wants to focus on his music and plans on incorporating "Music To My Eyes" into his live shows. 

He would also like to do a cover of Lady Gaga's "Million Reasons." Lukas added that it's a classic song because Lady Gaga has "a good sense of songwriting."
