2024 Josie Award Nominee- Rising Star





































May News 

The past month has flown by so fast. It’s been so cool with all that’s going on!

The SC Music and Entertainment Hall of Fame was a night that will never be forgotten. To be honored as the first recipient of the “Rising Star” award….well…as you’d imagine, it was both humbling and overwhelming. Meeting all the inductees backstage, was a treat for sure!

It was also incredible to be at the Trueline groundbreaking that morning with the inductees.

I want to thank everyone for the help with social media growth, those likes, shares and follows are showing up and making a difference!

Luke also received word that he has been nominated for the “Rising Star” for the Josie awards. The Josie Awards are the highest award globally for an independent artist. He’ll walk the red carpet at the Country Music Hall of Fame in October, of course we have our fingers crossed, but just being a nominee is an incredible honor.

Luke will also be a contestant in August with his song “Lake Day Sunsets” in Carolina County Music Assco. competition. His song along with 3 others will air on radio stations along the coast of both Carolinas, and big listened to by music industry executives. There will also be a fan favorite piece that you can vote in, and we’ll get that info out as well.

New Music- the hits just keep coming!

Lake Day Sunsets, Hey Bartender, and Wherever You’re Going continue to grow and track well! Thank you!

-5/24 Country As All Get Out

-6/14 No Good Way To Leave A Bad Woman

Along with all the writing being done, 6 songs are in process for future release this year!

New Venues Added-

-New Realm Brewing Greenville

-Cowboy Up Greenville

-City of Pickens

Look for dates to catch him!

March 2024


Spring is here and we’ve been able to play outside with the WILDCARDS! This past weekend at the Silos was phenomenal!  It was also the first time we got to bring out the light show!


New Music-

Thanks everyone for giving “Calling It Your Job, Don’t Make It Right” a stream, it’s a fun song that continues to gain traction!

The next release is on 3/29 “Slow Motion Things” this is the song I wrote after my wreck. Its about that feeling of being in slow motion.

The song behind that will be “Wherever You’re Going” (that’s where I’ll be). I’m really proud of this song, it took a long time to write it, but I’m very proud of the way it turned out.


We’re sending 3 new songs to the studio this week for upcoming releases, and I’ve just finished the bass track for “Old Soul” I wrote for my papa. So there’s a ton of new music coming your way!


April 6th- immediately following the Spring Game, the Wildcards and I will be at the ESSO CLUB!

April 6th – we’ll also be at our monthly show at Smiley’s on the Roxx later that evening!

April 23rd - I’ll be back at the singer/ songwriter event, Song For Survivors. The benefit is a fundraiser for the Pickens County Advocacy Center. I hope you’ll consider lending a hand.

April 25th-  I’ll be involved with the SC Music Hall of Fame event, performing and receiving a recognition. I’m both honored and humbled to be noticed.


New Venues-

 A huge thank you to the new venues that are bringing us in to play. The venue crisis in SC is real, and we encourage everyone to at least goggle the “SC Venue Crisis” to be informed.

Thank you from the Luke Deuce and the entire team!


PS- be on the lookout for a new article in the Post and Courier!



Feb 2024


Just Getting Started!


Took a much-needed weekend off and am so grateful for the time. Things are going to move quickly from here!


New Music-

You bet! This Truck released 2/9 and I sure appreciate the streams and listens! There are so many songs in process its hard to keep up!

3/8 Calling It Your Job will release. It’s a reference to personal experience and a throw back to the movie Cool Hand Luke!

3/29 Slow Motion Things will release. I guess this is the sequel to this This Truck. It’s about the wreck I experienced in November.

The other songs are showing up on my Patreon site. If you want those sneak peaks and to hear the songs early,



Dad and I have made one trip to Nashville this month, with another one planned for the end of the month. One the last trip Brian Maher and I wrote two songs again!



Don’t forget the website has the most up to date and accurate schedule for shows! We are continuing to add dates and are excited about the venues we are playing!



I’ll be at the Pint Station and Amici in Easley both before the month is out. And don’t forget about opening for Aaron Tippin 2/24!



Thank you to the Esso Club! This year we’ll be playing Homecoming!



Jan 2024

Happy New Year!

2024 has certainly started off bumpier than anticipated. The pillar and patriarch of our family, Luke’s grandfather, passed away very unexpectedly. We are truly overwhelmed by the outpouring of condolences and love for our family. Pop was, and always will be, a big part of who Luke is. There are many references to him in Luke’s songs and I imagine that trend will continue as Luke continues. Thank you for every hug, and every prayer, they have been a peace and comfort.



Wow! Thank you all for showing up and showing out in 2023! Because bookings have been great for 2024! Many new venues on the schedule, as well as some of your favorites! You showing up is what makes folks want Luke Deuce back, and we’re so grateful for it!



The schedule will be available on the website this year and not on FB. The problem is that FB limits the number of followers seeing a bus accounts event, unless we’re paying FB for exposure. And its one more place to try and maintain the correct information. We’ll continue to do monthly, weekly and performance posts, but for looking ahead, the website will be best.



Visits continue with 2 planned in February. We’ll be posting those dates in the schedule as well, as soon as we have them.



7 new songs in process! So you’ll be hearing new music regularly! The latest release is doing very, very well! Thanks for streaming it! It will spin on Sterling Country Radio in Texas starting 1/16/24!      

“More Than I Can Ask For”



This weekend will wrap up January’s shows. We’re going to take the last weekend off and chill….just chill!

But with that said,

Friday night will be Luke’s 500th show! He’ll play the early show at Smiley’s 6:30-9:30

500 shows = 1500 hours on stage = 62.5 DAYS on stage! Pretty remarkable considering he was in high school for almost all of that!

Saturday will be a full band show at a new venue downtown!

Sharky’s Pub we’ll kick things off at 9:30!


PS- Found out tonight were going back to chrome night, May 22nd!!!

2024 - Upcoming Events

Changes are coming, and there will be more venues to perform at. Here's what to expect:

I will continue to write and produce music from Nashville, and will release as many songs as possible.

The best way to keep track of my schedule is through my website. Although I will post on social media, Facebook events only reach a small number of followers unless we "boost" the events. We will pin the schedule for each month on social media, but the website will be the main calendar for everyone.

I will perform at several solo shows this year and hopefully be part of more singer/songwriter events. Here are some of the venues that have already booked me for the year:

  • Smiley's on the Roxx

  • Southernside Brewing

  • Silo's Brewing

  • Your Pie Dockside

  • Two Rivers Public House

  • Twice A town

  • Pub Blue

Please let your favorite venues know that we are filling dates quickly.

In 2024, we will have new lighting equipment. Thanks to a generous gift from a super fan, we will have access to DMX lighting fixtures that include lasers and AI lighting control. We can't wait to put it to use!

Remaining shows this month:

12/14 Smileys (solo)

12/15 Two Rivers Public House (solo)

12/16 Golden Grove (duo)

12/20 Southcack (duo)

12/21 Keowee Brewing (solo)

12/22 Wheel and Fowl (trio)

12/23 Twice A Town (trio)

12/28 Last Chance (duo)

12/29 On The Rail w/ Wildcards
