Bluegrass: The SteelDrivers Release ‘The Muscle Shoals’ Recordings


Fresh from their appearance at the CMA Music Festival, the SteelDrivers are celebrating the release of their acclaimed new album, The Muscle Shoals Recordings by taking their soulful bluegrass vibe on tour. From Sirius XM’s Bluegrass Junction the record mecca, Grimey’s, the Grand Ole Opry, and then on to band members’ hometowns and beyond, fans will get up close and personal with the new music this week.

Largely inspired by the legendary musical history of Muscle Shoals, the album itself is drenched in the vibes of the famous place while melding together blues, bluegrass, R&B, country and rock ‘n’ roll for one singular, dominating sound.


The Tennessean‘s Juli Thanki has praised the SteelDrivers’ “gutsy, gritty bluegrass songs,”  and the Philadelphia Inquirer‘s AD Amorosi said, “You can call it power-bluegrass or country soul, but whatever you call it, Nashville’s SteelDrivers have bushels of it.”

The SteelDrivers will be on tour throughout the summer and fall, and will announce new dates shortly.
