The SteelDrivers are a five-piece bluegrass band from Nashville, Tennessee that incorporates country and soul, or "new music with the old feeling."
The band consists of new lead vocalist/guitarist Gary Nichols, Mike Fleming on the bass, banjo player Richard Bailey, Tammy Rogers on the fiddle and Mike Henderson on guitar and mandolin. Signed to Rounder Records in mid-2000, the group has released two successful studio albums, The SteelDrivers and Reckless. Included here is a performance of "Guitars, Whiskey, Guns and Knives," which wasn't heard on the radio broadcast.
Each of these multi-talented musicians first came together to play bluegrass standards, but soon started writing their own songs with the help of former band member Chris Stapleton. "It is a bluegrass sound, but it's something a little bit more than bluegrass in many ways," says Mountain Stage host Larry Groce.
