If you know anything about Willie Nelson, it’s that he also has a very talented son, Lukas Nelson. His son has a band called Lukas Nelson & The Promise of The Real. Lukas recently announced that his dad would be helping to relaunch the “Good News Garden Project” on his website to support the band’s new album! The album is called Turn Off The News (Build A Garden.).
The album features 15 tracks of unreleased songs and alternate cuts that came out of sessions at Shangri-La and Village Studios. The name of the album is also ironic considering the current timing of the coronavirus pandemic.

In the form of local stories from your community and pictures of your gardens, you can share it right on their website. Simply submit a ‘good news’ story from your community, just something that is feel-good and happy. Or, take a photo of your personal garden and send it in.
