Self-produced by Nelson and POTRSticks and Stones was released last month on 6ACE Records/Thirty Tigers and is currently top 5 on the Americana Albums charts (stream/purchase here). With the record, Nelson continues to garner success at radio as his single, “Sticks and Stones,” is currently #1 on the Alt Country chart and top 10 on the Americana Singles chart. This follows Nelson’s previous single, “More Than Friends” featuring Lainey Wilson, which reached #1 on the Americana Singles chart earlier this summer. 

Written solely by Nelson, Sticks and Stones is filled with upbeat energy and a sense of fun, as he explores the universal human experiences of love, celebration, longing and humor, while also capturing the musical power and electricity of the band’s live performances. 

Since his debut over a decade ago, Texas and Hawaii-based Nelson has played countless sold-out shows and festivals and released seven studio albums to date including the latest, 2021’s A Few Stars Apart. Produced by Dave Cobb, the record spent seven weeks at #1 on the Americana Albums chart and received widespread acclaim with Rolling Stone declaring, “His best album yet…Nelson’s most compact, streamlined, and focused album,” while The Tennessean asserted, “a collection of lyrically stirring, musically multifarious and ultimately hopeful roots rock storytelling.” 

Additionally, Nelson co-produced the music for 2018’s lauded A Star Is Born film in addition to appearing in the film and went on to win a BAFTA Award for Best Original Music and a GRAMMY Award for Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media.  

Critical acclaim for Sticks and Stones: 
“makes the genre his own…This is a fresh and welcome addition to what he’s offered so far”
The Wall Street Journal
“thoughtful, timeless Southern-style rock featuring anything from introspective lyricism to virtuoso-style musicianship”—The Tennessean
“These songs are tried-and-true boot stompers, a particular style that feels like Nelson’s sweet spot. They’re also a showcase for some of his most masterful storytelling”—No Depression
“Radiating an easygoing style while capturing some of the most relatable experiences of the human condition, Lukas Nelson bares it all on Sticks and Stones”—Cowboys & Indians
“pure joy…on 12 lighthearted songs, classic twang, jam-rock tenancies, and jaunty old-time pop join a wink and a wry smirk, as Nelson lets the bad vibes roll off his back”—Nashville Lifestyles
“delivers in sound and ethos…the album showcases Nelson’s voice more prominently than ever before”—Austin Chronicle
“Lukas again shows that he is pretty much a genre unto himself…the album keeps you guessing as to what you might hear next, but every song is a gem”—Americana Highways
“a thoroughly good listen…Lukas Nelson + POTR deliver by the shovel”
Entertainment Focus
“enormously upbeat, playful and frankly joyous record”—Holler
“each song is a stylistic love letter to various snapshots of country music’s century-long history”Dallas Observer
“Lukas is a master with the pen”—Whiskey Riff
“It’s a likable, very well-rooted, American sound”—Riff Magazine

Of the record, Nelson reflects, “This album is about celebrating the human connection, joy and excitement. We went from quiet and introspective on A Few Stars Apart to something big and fun to really showcase the band’s talent and performance. You can listen to the album Sticks and Stones from start to finish and get the songs to dance to and then the quiet, poignant songs. To me, this album is the perfect setlist.”
