The Steeldrivers Biography:

The Steeldrivers got together in Nashville, Tenn. Each of them were highly respected, in-demand session players. Mike Henderson and Chris Stapleton had been writing songs together for years when, one night, they decided to play some bluegrass together. The result of that jam session quickly evolved into the compiling of the rest of the band. Before long, they were playing to sold out crowds around Nashville, and making a steady run of the bluegrass festivals. They released their self-titled debut album in January 2008 on Rounder Records.
