Lukas Nelson & Promise Of The Real continued the Soundcheck Songs cover series with a rendition of Bobby Charles‘ “I Must Be In A Good Place Now”. Released on Thursday—which also happens to be the 11th anniversary of Charles’ death—this latest installment comes after Nelson broke form the week prior with a solo rendition of his original, “Set Me Down On A Cloud“.
In this take on the track from Charles’ 1972 self-titled debut record, Nelson and POTR slow things down a bit with the blues shuffle. With bassist Corey McCormick donning an upright acoustic bass, the whole air of the performance takes on a classy, understated tone. As Nelson provides brief-but-potent guitar phrasings between lyrics, piano player Logan Metz serves as a focal point. The baton is soon passed to Nelson, however, as he brings the song home with more concentrated guitar work as he is able to explore the musical space.
