We all believed that being placed on the Ballot for a Grammy nomination was a fitting tribute to Guy and the awesome legacy he leaves behind.

    NASHVILLE, TN, October 31, 2016 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Nashvillian Fiddler, Vocalist and Songwriter Luke Bulla's new LP, Who Loves You Better, was released in May by Pure Music Nashville to critical acclaim and widespread radio spins, social media engagement and live shows across the USA. The lead song, 'Temperance Reel,' co-written by Bulla and Grammy winners Guy Clark and Jon Randall Stewart, has been placed on the Ballot for a Grammy Nomination for Best American Roots Performance.

Produced by yet another Grammy winner, Bryan Sutton, the LP was recorded at Zac Brown's Southern Ground Studios in Nashville and features an impressive list of performers including: Sutton, Sarah Jarosz, Sam Bush, The Whites, Noam Pikelny, Maura O'Connell, Jerry Douglas and Lee Ann Womack.

The LP also features songs composed by Grammy winners Lyle Lovett (the title track, 'Who Loves You Better'), Buddy Miller, Cole Porter, Pink Floyd's David Gilmour, Rodney Crowell and others including Jamie Hartford and Luke's longtime bandmate, drummer Russ Kunkel.

Speaking of the experience, Bulla said: "Writing with masters like Guy and Jon Randall brings in so many flavors and dimensions to the music and storytelling. One could not ask for better mentors to learn and apply the art of songwriting and I'm so glad I was able to write with Guy before his untimely passing earlier this year. When we learned about being placed on the Ballot for a Grammy Nomination, we felt 'Temperance Reel' was a fitting tribute to the awesome legacy Guy leaves behind as one of American music's best loved performers, writers and co-writers."

Pure Music Nashville partner John Heithaus added: "We're hopeful the process results in being one of the nominees for the Best American Roots Performance category and are grateful to have made it to this level. Many thanks to the fans and supporters and the musicians, songwriters, sound engineers, artists, photographers and social media team for contributions to this special project."
