Grammy nod for Reckless Kelly "Good Luck & True Love" packaging

Hard work by Red Dirt bands is not often recognized by the Grammy Awards. However, Reckless Kelly's "Good Luck & True Love" received a well-deserved Grammy nomination for its terrific album packaging on the band's hit album.  Art directors Sarah Dodds and Shauna Dodds provided a comprehensively compelling package for "Good Luck & True Love" that was heralded by this magazine in August 2011 as "one of the best" album packages of any audio recording this year.

The great CD packaging also properly highlighted the stellar musical collection by Reckless Kelly that includes the mid-tempo, Red Dirt anthem "Give It A Try" and the melodic "Save Me From Myself." This is one album you need to see for yourself. Buy it now by clicking here for the CD or  clicking here for the vinyl edition.

Reckless Kelly's album will compete against "Chickenfoot III" by Chickenfoot, "Rivers And Homes" by J Viewz, "Scenes From The Suburbs" by Arcade Fire and "Watch The Throne" from Jay-Z and Kanye West.

In our album review, managing editor B.J. Jones said: "Good Luck & True Love" is one of the finest examples ever of a fully conceptualized album in the Red Dirt genre. With excellent packaging, song sequence, lyrics, vocals and instrumentation, this album should bring Reckless Kelly good fortune." Thankfully, Grammy voters agreed, and hopefully Reckless Kelly's good luck will prevail once again when the Grammy Awards are handed out in February 2012.
