What began as a casual jam session over a decade ago has become one of today’s leaders in the americana/bluegrass music world. The SteelDrivers scored their first GRAMMY® nomination in 2008 for Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal for the song “Blue Side of the Mountain.” In 2010, the group’s sophomore effort Reckless, received Best Bluegrass Album and Best Country Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocal, courtesy of the universally popular hit “Where Rainbows Never Die.”
The group continued to rise with the release of “Hammer Down,” debuting No. 1 on the Billboard Bluegrass Charts. Their 2015 The Muscle Shoals Recording won a GRAMMY® for Best Bluegrass Album, as well as three IBMA nominations for Album, Song, Songwriter, and Liner Notes of the Year honors.
In 2020, The SteelDrivers released the chart-topping “Bad for You” to both industry and media approval. The quintet tours an average of 75 dates annually while continuing to bring world-class music to fans.
