Lukas is the second youngest of Willie’s children. He has made a name for himself in the music industry as the frontman of Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real.
The group has served as Neil Young’s backing band since 2015. They rose to a new level of fame due to their involvement in the 2018 remake of A Star is Born. Lukas co-produced the movie’s music and wrote songs with its lead actress, Lady Gaga. In addition, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real acted as the backing band for Bradley Cooper’s character, Jackson Maine.
Lukas’ work on A Star is Born led him to two award wins. He won the BAFTA Award for Best Original Music and the Grammy Award for Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media.
