The SteelDrivers took the stage at the Ryman Auditorium July 23rd as part of the “Bluegrass Nights” series. Hot from the success of their new album “The Muscle Shoals Recordings” on Rounder records which debuted on the Billboard Bluegrass chart at #1 they are not your ordinary Bluegrass band.
The SteelDrivers are more like a steam locomotive that keeps rolling along, taking the traditional Bluegrass sound and infusing it with a 21st century feel. The band members are all accomplished musicians.....
Richard Bailey on banjo
Brent Truitt on madolin
Tammy Rodgers on vocals and fiddle
Mike Fleming on bass and vocals
Gary Nichols on vocals and guitar
As Vince Gill puts it, They are “An incrediable combination” which earned them a standing ovation at the Ryman that night. Currently touring the country, more information and their schedule may be found at:
