Ten years and five acclaimed albums into one of the most uncompromising careers in American music, the singer/songwriter whose work has been compared to Prine, Cash and Nebraska-era Springsteen by some the toughest music writers in America may have finally conquered his most demanding critic of all: himself. For fans, critics and even Knight himself, Heart Of Stone is the record where it all comes together. It’s an album that is alternately raw and rocking, quietly powerful and significantly truthful in its scope. Most of all, Heart Of Stone is the sound of a remarkable artist coming into his own.

For some, their first musical memory might be a favorite song playing on the radio, a video on MTV, or a concert their parents took them to. But for 22-year-old singer-songwriter-guitarist Lukas Nelson, his first music memory is being onstage with such superstars as Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Kris Kristofferson and his father Willie Nelson singing along and stomping his feet to a crowd of thousands. Says Lukas about his first album, Promise of the Real, “This album makes me feel good and that's the point. The whole idea of being a musician is to create joy in the hearts of others. The whole idea of being an entertainer is to make people happy and entertain. And that's something I think we achieved on this record. I really believe that everybody has their own purpose in life and I think mine is just to play music and spread some joy."
