Hit songwriter/artist Luke Dick is one of the creative people in Nashville that keeps music interesting for us. His left-of-center perspective shows up in hits he’s co-written for Eric Church (“Kill a Word”), Dierks Bentley (“Burning Man”), Kacey Musgraves ("Velvet Elvis") and he just received his first Grammy Nomination for Country Song of the Year for co-writing “Bluebird” with Miranda Lambert and Natalie Hemby. For what is surely his most personal project to date, Luke enlisted Dierks, Miranda, Patrick Carney of The Black Keys, The Highwomen’s Natalie Hemby and Jackson Dean to help him create the album Music from the Documentary Red Dog. On both the album and in the film, Red Dog, Luke and his mom, Kim, tell the story of the people at Oklahoma City’s Red Dog Saloon, the topless bar where Kim worked as a dancer when Luke was a kid. In this conversation, Luke tells us what inspired him to create the Red Dog documentary and album, how he found his people in Nashville’s music community, and how he keeps challenging himself to grow creatively.
