UMFM Presents

The road is no stranger to Cana­di­an coun­try singer Zachary Lucky. He’s used to rolling through hun­dreds of tour dates a year, sleep­ing in the back of his car, and play­ing his heart out in every town he moves through. He’s learned to trust the road, and to trust the gifts it brings. It’s a les­son he learned first from his grand­fa­ther, famed Cana­di­an west­ern singer Smilin’ John­nie Lucky, who was known for relent­less­ly tour­ing the Arc­tic regions of the coun­try. In his youth, Zachary Lucky felt free on the road, dri­ving from one town to the next and nev­er stay­ing long. I nev­er felt the need to come home” he says, because there was nev­er any­thing wait­ing for me there.” Ten years lat­er, he’s got a new out­look on his life and a fam­i­ly wait­ing for him at home in Ontario. The songs on his new album Mid­west­ern, com­ing Octo­ber 18, 2019, grap­ple with father­hood, the pas­sage of time, and whether his daugh­ters will grow up know­ing the Cana­di­an prairies he still loves.
