Reckless Kelly To Release New Live Recording Next Month; Announces New Live Dates

Reckless Kelly has a new live recording due out next month.

The veteran county-rock band announced Friday that it will release Bulletproof Live June 21 via Thirty Tigers.  The recording was originally captured during the band’s 2018 west coast tour during which the band celebrated the 10th anniversary of the release of Bulletproof.  It features songs from the album performed at various points during that tour.

In anticipation of the recording’s upcoming release, Reckless Kelly has released a stream of the song ‘You Don’t Have To Stay Forever’ via SoundCloud and Wide Open Country. Reckless Kelly fiddle/mandolin/harmonica player Cody Braun talked about the song in a recent interview.

“‘You Don’t Have To Stay Forever’ has always been a fun song to play because it’s a little different in structure than some some of our other tunes,” Braun said.  “I love interesting melodies and songs that go places you don’t expect them to.  Songs start out as nothing but ideas, and only once they’re written down and recorded do they become something real and tangible.  The strong ones survive and if they’re played enough, live over a long period of time they eventually take on a second life and even sometimes new meanings.  We wanted to capture that.”
