Lucky Numbers is the third album in three years for the self-declared The Ringmaster General after last year's release of the same name and 2011's The Blackbird Diaries. For Lucky Numbers, the singer, songwriter and guitarist assembled the same team of Nashville's finest that were on the previous two, though instead of working in co-producer/engineer John McBride's Nashville studio, Stewart shifted the recording sessions to a boat in the South Pacific. Like the previous two albums, Lucky Numbers combines Stewart's '60s British rock sensibilities growing up in the northeast of England with the veteran Nashville country musicians' southern blues. Players on Lucky Numbers include guitarist Tom Bukovac, drummer Chad Cromwell, bassist Michael Rhodes, pianist Mike Rojas, pedal steel guitarist Dan Dugmore joined by multi-instrumentalist Kieran Kiely, who played accordion, flute and, most notably, the Irish bodhrán drum that can be heard in the opening notes of the first single, "Every Single Night." The list of guest stars includes singers Martina McBride - "Every Single Night", Karen Elson - "Nashville Snow", Aussie pop diva Vanessa Amorosi - "What's Wrong With Me", Broadway star Laura Michelle Kelly and violinist Ann Marie Calhoun.
