While hordes of music lovers make their way to Austin, TX, March 14 for one of the country’s biggest creative conferences of the year, a boutique music festival takes place just 30 miles outside the capital city. Offering a welcome reprieve from the hustle and bustle of downtown Austin, Willie Nelson’s legendary ranch hosts the Luck Reunion—a celebration of old and new that features trailblazers of American roots music and up-and-coming artists following in their footsteps. The event is named for Nelson’s property, which he dubbed “Luck, Texas.”
