Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real – Life On Mars? (David Bowie cover)


Casey here with my DJ pick of the week from Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real. David Bowie is one of my favorite artists of all time, and I am floored by Nelson’s “Life On Mars?” cover.

Following the success of 2017’s self-titled LP, Nelson has remained busy touring with his band, his father Willie Nelson and backing the one and only Neil Young. He also wrote songs from the new movie A Star Is Born, and now, he’s blessed us all with a new EP Forget About Georgia featuring five tracks including Bowie’s “Life On Mars?” Give it a listen below and let us know what you think!

Casey is that rarest of creatures…a Native Tennesseean. His love of music can be traced to the day his dad sat him down and played him Bo Diddley’s “Who Do You Love?” Everything pretty much changed after that. He began his broadcasting career at the age of 14 at an AM station in Northern Middle Tennessee. It was there he learned how to cue vinyl records, splice tape with razor blades, and other skills that no longer serve any purpose. In the late nineties, he was the host of our evening show until management decided that probably wasn’t a good idea anymore. Casey returned to Nashville airwaves in 2016. When he isn’t on the air, he spends his time with his wife and son. He would also appreciate it if you’d get offa his lawn.
