The Wood Brothers brought their Heart Is The Hero tour to famed New Orleans venue Tipitina’s last night. The concert concluded with a stellar version of the beloved song “Luckiest Man” that saw the trio accompanied by pal Steven Cooper and support act The Watson Twins.

The Wood Brothers’ Oliver Wood, Chris Wood and Jano Rix assembled with Cooper and twin sisters Chandra Watson and Leigh Watson around a single mic for the evening’s encore. Up first was a take on the gospel classic “Angel Band” before the aforementioned “Luckiest Man.”

Steven Cooper was among the contributors to Heart Is The Hero, an album released by The Wood Brothers on April 14, 2023. Cooper played acoustic guitar and added harmony vocals to both “Angel Band” and “Luckiest Man” at Tips on Tuesday night, while The Watson Twins also provided backing vocals on each song.

“Luckiest Man” was originally issued on The Wood Brothers’ debut studio album, Ways Not To Lose, in 2006. The song, which includes the record’s title within its lyrics, has been a staple of the band’s live repertoire ever since.

“Hey, it feels pretty good, right?” Oliver Wood exclaimed at the start of “Luckiest Man” after thanking Cooper and The Watson Twins. “There’s absolutely nothing to worry about at this very moment,” Oliver added.
