For 15 years, the members of “Reckless Kelly” have been doing things their way, bucking the mainstream system and playing by their own rules, straddling the fence between country and rock as if they built it themselves. Throughout the years, their old-school approach to recording has always adhered to one main objective: Make each record better than the last. Their latest effort, “Good Luck & True Love” is no exception to this rule. The 2011 release has earned a Grammy nomination (Best Recording Package), three No. 1 singles on Texas Radio, and four Lone Star Music Awards.

Recorded in an old farmhouse-turned studio in Austin, “Good Luck & True Love” is pure, driving, uncut “Reckless Kelly.” The songs are all written or co-written by front man Willy Braun, and range in subject matter from road songs to songs about music, and songs about good old-fashioned heartbreak. The album is the ninth in “Reckless Kelly’s” ever-growing catalogue and is the third they have produced by themselves.

The Reckless boys also made it a point to track almost all of it live. Just five guys sitting in a room playing music, with minimal overdubs, and aside from a harmony vocal from Dani Flowers, the band plays each and every instrument and part. “We wanted to make a record that sounded like we sound live, without any extra parts thrown in. We wanted it to sound like a band,” said fiddle/mandolin player Cody Braun.

The result is an album that encompasses the last 15 years of “Reckless Kelly.” Ten new songs that capture the essence of a road-worn and battle-scarred band of brothers that aren’t afraid to take risks and tell it like it is. That’s country rock. That’s old school. That’s “Reckless Kelly.”

“Reckless Kelly” will co-headline Saturday, June 15, with Cody Canada & “The Departed” during the Stockdale Watermelon Jubilee. The group will close this year’s celebration from 11:30 p.m. until 1 a.m.
