I've never in my life anticipated the release of a new album. For some reason, this band, The Steeldrivers, has captivated me. I'm hooked. It's that clean, non-gimmicky sound coupled to those deep, raspy vocals that just gets me. You can't fake it in a band like this. Check out the video, five players, a mike and some amplifiers. Tune up, step up and belt it out- now that's pure. Man, this is traveling music- the kind of stuff that makes me want to load the truck with boards, boats and bikes and head... somewhere out there. Check them out:
You've got to understand, I've never been a country music fan- total apologies to the Merle devotees out there but that stuff has never appealed to me. And the "new" country? If I ever hear the "Achey Breakey Heart" again I'll blow groceries across the face of this monitor.
The new album comes out Sept. 7th. I can hardly wait.
