EDITORS’ NOTES

The SteelDrivers’ second LP, and last with singer/guitarist Chris Stapleton, is firmly rooted in the proud bluegrass tradition of banjo, fiddle, and mandolin. However, this lively Nashville band refuses to be fenced in, veering boldly into country-soul territory (“Where Rainbows Never Die”) and rock attitude (“Good Corn Liquor”). But at their best they race into straight bluegrass with infectious abandon (“The Reckless Side of Me”). The epic “Ghosts of Mississippi” defies any pigeonhole; it’s full of hot harmonies, wailing fiddle, and mad passion.

I Wish I'd Heard It Sooner

so passionate and soulful. Chris has something not a lot of vocalist/songwriters have. He could seriously sing the dictionary, and it would be amazing.

Wow.

Can't believe I'm finding this 7 years after it was released, but better late than never. Steeldrivers, and mostly Stapleton's voice, put the blue in bluegrass, and by that I mean the blues. It's a strange and excellent combination. Chris sings in a very soulful, bluesy way, to bluegrass songs. The players, the songwriting, the singing, all excellent. A must have.
