New album and UK tour from JD & The Straight Shot

Americana band JD & The Straight Shot will release their vibrant sixth studio album Good Luck And Good Night on September 15th. The band comprises of vocalist/guitarist Jim Dolan, guitarist Marc Copely (B.B. King, Rosanne Cash), bassist Byron House (Robert Plant, Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton), violinist/fiddler Erin Slaver (Martina McBride, Rod Stewart) and drummer/percussionist Shawn Pelton (Sheryl Crow, Levon Helm, Saturday Night Live band).

Good Luck And Good Night was conceived as an all-acoustic record and was produced and mixed by Copely  and engineered by Chuck Ainley (Mark Knopfler, George Strait, Lee Ann Womack) at the famous Soundstage Studios in Nashville. Frontman Dolan says, "We pushed ourselves harder than ever before on this album and are so proud of the new music."

Influenced by artists like The Beach Boys, Pink Floyd and The Beatles along with traditional Irish folk music and classical music, Good Luck And Good Night delivers a huge sound steeped in the quiet fire of American roots music and the swagger of rock n roll.

The band will be touring extensively in support of Good Luck And Good Night. The band has previously hit the road with luminaries such as the Eagles, Keith Urban, Don Henley, Dixie Chicks, Jewel, Joe Walsh, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and more.  Catch them on the UK tour dates below.
