Luck Productions and ASCAP Announce Luck Embassy, A Unique Artist-Facing Portal for #luckfamily

March 18, 2019

A partnership with Southwest®, Gibson, The Line Hotel, and Modern Electric Sound

March 18, 2019 - Luck, TX - Luck Productions is pleased to announce the new Luck Embassy program, a unique artist-facing portal geared toward helping musicians where it counts. Luck is joining forces with ASCAP and our Embassy partners—Southwest®, Gibson, The Line Hotel, and Modern Electric Sound—to develop a platform which offers year-round artist support directly to #luckfamily. Luck Reunion’s Matt Bizer says, “The Luck Embassy is our way of honoring a year-round commitment to our Luck Family of artists. We are excited to kick off Embassy offers with some of our favorite partners; and look forward to growing the program as a resource pool and safe space dedicated to supporting artists where it matters most.” From helping #luckfamily get where you need to go, to hooking you up when you get there—and everything in between—the Luck Embassy community will have your back.

“ASCAP has always celebrated music's history while lifting up the next generation of songwriters, so partnering with Luck Reunion to support the Luck Embassy program made perfect sense. ASCAP shares Luck’s spirit of support for artists and their creative families, and together we hope to be a friendly place for them to turn, no matter where they are in their careers or what kind of music they create,” said ASCAP's Beth Brinker, Nashville-based Membership Director. “That we get to call Texas home base for this partnership feels like a special nod to some of our most celebrated members, like Townes Van Zandt, Guy and Susanna Clark, Rodney Crowell, Emmylou Harris, Lyle Lovett and Steve Earle, legends who have forged a path for today's storytellers.”

See below for a breakdown of benefits offered to #luckfamily through the Luck Embassy portal:

Southwest®: 100 one-way flights

It’s getting you to your next show; allowing you to change your plans without a change fee; letting your guitars fly free, and providing you great hospitality and entertainment along the way.

The Luck Embassy program is bridging the gap for Luck Artists and Southwest® by assisting in this airlines promise to connect artists with their fans. We are doing this by offering 100 one-way tickets to artists who submit a request for a specific need (one entry per artist or band per year).
