When The Boxcars released IT’S JUST A ROAD in April 2013, members of the band fielded the usual interview questions about song selections, style, creative decisions and more. Both eloquently and quite simply, Adam Steffey summed up the process, the project and the band philosophy in general with characteristic aplomb, saying “What’s wrong with just playing good bluegrass?”
Good bluegrass indeed! The album has garnered a GRAMMY NOMINATION for Best Bluegrass Album in the 56th Annual Grammy Awards (1/26/14)
The Boxcars. Adam Steffey, Ron Stewart, John R. Bowman, Keith Garrett and Harold Nixon make up what will surely soon be one of the top headliners in bluegrass and beyond. With collective stints with Alison Krauss & Union Station (Adam Steffey, John Bowman), J.D. Crowe & The New South (Ron Stewart, John Bowman, Harold Nixon), Blue Moon Rising (Keith Garrett and Harold Nixon), The Isaacs (John Bowman) and most recently The Dan Tyminski Band (Steffey and Stewart), this quintet starts out with an impressive rap sheet. Steffey’s newly released project on Sugar Hill, One More For The Road is a receiving a great deal of airplay and attention and features guest appearances by Krauss, Ronnie Bowman and Tyminski. Expect The Boxcars to cover this material and branch out into their own unique style of contemporary bluegrass laced with Steffey’s signature rhythm that can be traced back to the early days of Union Station. Award winning instrumentalist Ron Stewart will deliver rock solid banjo work, but will also lay down the banjo for the fiddle on some tunes. It’s always a rarity to have multiple strong vocalists in the same group, and The Boxcars will benefit from strong vocal performances from Keith Garrett, John Bowman and Steffey’s signature baritone.
