Third Man’s ‘Luck Mansion Sessions’ Round Two Due Out Aug. 25

The second installment of the Luck Mansion Sessions, featuring pairings of Josh Hedley and Erin Rae, and John Paul White and Rodney Crowell, is set for release Aug. 25.

The sessions were documented during Americana week last year in Nashville, when Third Man Records partnered with Luck Reunion to bring together some artists. For five days, they all set up in the parlor room of the pop-up “Luck Mansion” in East Nashville to perform, record, and in some cases, pen two songs for Third Man Records engineers to record immediately, after just a few hours of preparation, press onto 7″s, and ultimately bring to the masses. The goal was to document spontaneous creative collaborations before they are put through any sort of industry machine line, and in March, Third Man shared the encounters between Sarah Jarosz and Parker Milsap, Lilly Hiatt and Aaron Lee Tasjan, and Dylan LeBlanc and Rayland Baxter.

Hedley and Erin Rae’s performance included Hank Williams Jr.s’ “Old Habits” and a haunting rendition of Guy Clark’s “My Favorite Picture of You.” Hedley, a mainstay on Nashville’s lower Broadway honky tonk Robert’s, has recently been signed to Third Man Records.

John Paul White and Rodney Crowell performed Crowell’s “The Girl On The Street” as well as one of three original tunes penned for the Luck Mansion Sessions, “Don’t Think That I Can’t Feel You When You’re Gone.” “Don’t Think That I Can’t Feel You When You’re Gone” is White and Crowell’s first co-write, but not the first collaboration for the pair. White joined Rosanne Cash on vocals for the song “It Ain’t Over Yet” off Crowell’s 2017 release Close Ties (New West). The song and the record have been nominated by the American Music Association in the categories of Song and Album of the Year.

Black vinyl versions of these recordings will be available beginning August 25th at indie retailers, with pre-orders starting today via
