NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Mar. 8, 2019) — It’s been 11 years now since GRAMMY® award-winning band, The SteelDrivers, released their self-titled debut recording project.  The world-class musicians continue their musical journey on the 2019 Bona Fide U.S. Tour in distinct style with performances from Folsom, California to Annapolis, Maryland and everywhere in between.  Shows in markets shown above go on-sale TODAY.  Tickets links can be found HERE.  
“Our dedication and determination remain just as intact today as it did over a decade ago,” says singer, songwriter and fiddler Tammy Rogers.  “I liken us to what the Rolling Stones would sound like if they played banjos, fiddles and mandolins — it’s that rock-n-roll edge played on traditional instruments and our shows continue to reflect that high-level energy and fun!”  
Throughout their long career — one that encompasses four highly acclaimed albums — The SteelDrivers (2008), Reckless (2010), Hammer Down (2012) and The Muscle Shoals Recordings (2015), their inspiration has ultimately always been about the music. A sound The Tennessean once described as “gutsy, gritty bluegrass songs.”  The Philadelphia Inquirer put it even more succinctly, “You can call it power-bluegrass or country soul, but whatever you call it, Nashville’s SteelDrivers have bushels of it.” 
Part of their lure is the freedom each musician gets to express themselves without any reservation, even as the group maintains their signature sound.  Rogers is widely recognized as one of the most versatile and expressive fiddlers on the scene today.  Brent Truitt and Richard Bailey are certified string benders who take their respective instruments to new levels of expertise.  Newest member and Kentucky native Kelvin Damrell’s vocals and fretwork add a fresh voice to the mix, whileMike Fleming continues to anchor it all with rock solid rhythm and a firm foundation.  
The band’s Rounder Records project The Muscle Shoals Recordings reached #1 on the BillboardBluegrass Chart and received a GRAMMY® award for “Best Bluegrass Album.”  The SteelDrivers re-released their 2008 self-titled debut album on vinyl.  It is available here.   To learn more,
