The SteelDrivers make their fourth visit to Mountain Stage, recorded live at the Augusta Heritage Center in Elkins, W.Va. It has already been a good year for The SteelDrivers: Long one of bluegrass music's most beloved and in-demand bands, the group's star has risen ever higher with its very first Grammy win for The Muscle Shoals Recordings.

When it was founded in 2005, the group's lineup included now-acclaimed country singer-songwriter Chris Stapleton. Years later, The SteelDrivers continue to blend a love of bluegrass with a fresh, soulful spirit that earns the band top billing at festivals across the country all summer long. Gary Nichols sings lead vocal and plays guitar, along with singer and fiddler Tammy Rogers, bassist Mike Fleming, mandolinist Brent Truitt and banjo player Richard Bailey.
