NASHVILLE, Tenn. (July 18, 2023)
GRAMMY and IBMA Award winners The SteelDrivers announce a new Gospel album, Tougher Than Nails, due out September 8 via Gaither Music Group, available for pre-order now.
“Just a Little Talk with Jesus,” the 11-song record’s debut track, is out now.
“The sacred and the secular have always gone hand in hand in Bluegrass music… just like Saturday nights and Sunday mornings,” stated group member Tammy Rogers. “The SteelDrivers have waited a long time to do a full Gospel album, but I believe the time is just perfect for our new release, Tougher Than Nails, on Gaither Music. We couldn’t be more excited to share our version of some classics along with six brand new songs written by members of the band, past and present.”
The group — Richard Bailey on banjo, Tammy Rogers on fiddle, Mike Fleming on bass, Brent Truitt on mandolin, and Matt Dame on guitar — continues to redefine Bluegrass music, showcasing seasoned musicianship and seamless, vocal harmonies that are familiar yet fresh.
Accomplished veterans individually, the quintet combines country, soul, and blues stylings for Tougher Than Nails. Featuring original songs “Magdalene,” “At the River,” and more, along with classics like “Amazing Grace” and “Farther Along,” The SteelDrivers deliver messages of hope and redemption through stellar performances.
