NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE — When Willy Braun, frontman and principal songwriter for the Grammy-winning band, Reckless Kelly, began writing songs for Long Night Moon, he quickly found a theme emerging. “About halfway through writing this record, I noticed that almost all of the songs I was writing, whether they were songs about the road, life, or love, had something to do with traveling. It started as an accident and I decided to just go with it. Before we knew it, there was a definite theme.” It’s honest, original and constantly evolving.
The group is known for their explosive live shows and a passion for making albums of substance. Long Night Moon is no exception to this rule.
“Reckless Kelly’s Long Night Moon twists and turns like an endless highway. Bandleader Willy Braun recently spoke with CMT Edge about evolving as a songwriter, working with steel guitarist Lloyd Maines and the band’s excellent new country-rock album.”

“Again, Reckless Kelly has delivered a complete album; substantive, and authentic with expert musicianship and story songs crafted by a thoughtful lyricist.”

Reckless Kelly is set to bring their show to Nashville's 3rd & Lindsley on Thursday, October 30 @ 8:00 p.m. Joining Reckless Kelly will be Mickey & The Motorcars.
Reckless Kelly's 8th studio album, Long Night Moon, is the follow-up to 2011's Grammy nominated Good Luck & True Love, which took home four Lone Star Music Awards, and sent three singles to #1 on Texas Radio.
Produced by band members Willy & Cody Braun, along with Lead Guitarist David Abeyta, Long Night Moon was mixed by Ray Kennedy (Steve Earle, Emmylou Harris), and features additional instrumentation from legendary steel guitar player Lloyd Maines, as well as Bukka Allen (piano, organ) and Jeff Plankenhorn (dobro).
