Memphis rock band Lucero recorded its new album, All A Man Should Do, at Ardent Studios in its hometown. Ardent is where Big Star recorded all of its albums, and Lucero strengthened the connection between the two bands by covering a Big Star song — and getting original Big Star drummer Jody Stephens to play on the recording.

In today's session, Lucero performs some of its new material, and frontman Ben Nichols discusses All A Man Should Do, which contains some of his most personal songs yet.
