Luke Bell: Nashville's Newest Star

Photography by Bonnie M. Morét
Luke Bell, a Wyoming native, started playing music during his college years at the University of Wyoming.  He moved to Austin, Texas, for a bit and now lives in Nashville.  In fact, you can find him at Santa’s Pub on Bransford Avenue playing with Santa’s Ice-Cold Pickers on Sunday nights. 

I had the pleasure of hearing Luke Bell at the Tabernacle in Atlanta opening for Willie Nelson.  If you like classic country with honey-dipped vocals singing heart-felt lyrics, then you will love his music. 

I can't tell you what he will be doing after his tour with Willie Nelson, but I can tell you that he will take it one day at a time.  Luke Bell likes work, cowboy culture, good songs, honky-tonks, New Orleans R&B, his dog and his '95 Buick LeSabre.one day at a time.  He likes work, cowboy culture, good songs, honky-tonks, New Orleans R&B, his dog and his 95 Buick LeSabre
Luke Bell is joined by Mark Sloan on guitar, Casey Driscoll on fiddle
and Pete Lindberg on drums.
