Groupe Country US, les SteelDrivers se compose de Richard Bailey, Mike Fleming, Mike Henderson, Tammy Rogers et Chris Stapleton.
Specializing in a unique mix of what might be called bluegrass soul, the SteelDrivers are comprised of a group of veteran Nashville session players including Richard Bailey on banjo, Mike Fleming on bass, Mike Henderson on mandolin, Tammy Rogers on fiddle, and Chris Stapleton on guitar and lead vocals. It is Stapleton's bluesy, hoarse, and Tom Waits-like singing that really sets the Steel Drivers apart in the often generic contemporary bluegrass genre, where a high and lonesome tenor lead vocal is typically heard. Stapleton's passionate croaking gives the Steel Drivers an authentic, aged, and rootsy feel. The band quickly became a favorite on the bluegrass festival circuit and released a debut album, simply called The Steel Drivers and consisting of all original compositions, on Rounder Records early in 2008.
