The Steeldrivers Interview & Performance from Mountain Stage

NPR has posted another great interview and performance from Mountain Stage. This time it showcases the Nashville-based bluegrass band, The Steeldrivers. It's a great showcase of the band's new vocalist/ guitarist, Gary Nichols. The live performance segment includes the song "Guitars, Whiskey, Guns and Knives", which was not included in the original broadcast.

The band has releases two albums for
Rounder Records, The SteelDrivers and Reckless. According to NPR: 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.
