Dale Ann Bradley w/Kim Fox & Steve Gulley at Station Inn 


Here’s a dream lineup of bluegrass singers (and songwriters too) to start the year off right. Steve Gulley, who’s brought Opry audiences to their feet with his renditions of George Jones classics, and IBMA Female Vocalist of the Year Dale Ann Bradley share an old-school background working at Kentucky’s enduring Renfro Valley Barn Dance in the ’90s, while Kim Fox (whose “Nothing to Lose” is threatening to become a country standard, thanks to recordings by Trisha Yearwood and Reba McEntire) sports her own history of delicious family-band harmonies and more recent work with Bradley. Gulley’s also a fine and prolific songwriter, with his own IBMA trophy to show for it, and Bradley’s been getting some long-overdue respect in that department herself. They’ll be backed by an outstanding set of bandmates in Deanie Richardson (fiddle) and Mike Sumner (banjo)—both in Bradley’s outfit—and mando monster Alan Bibey, who partners with Gulley in Grasstowne. Yowza!
