#605: The SteelDrivers
Bluegrass:The SteelDrivers perform from their newest album Reckless during the Jammin at Hippie Jack’s Americana Music Festival in Overton County, TN.
Only Nashville, TN could give birth to a band like The SteelDrivers: a group of seasoned veterans – each distinguished in his or her own right, each valued in the town’s commercial community – who are seizing an opportunity to follow their hearts to their souls’ reward. In doing so, they are braiding their bluegrass roots with new threads of their own design, bringing together country, soul, and other contemporary influences to create an unapologetic hybrid that is old as the hills but fresh as the morning dew. This is new music with the old feeling. SteelDrivers fan Vince Gill describes the band’s fusion as simply “an incredible combination.”
