Jimmy Stewart and Friends at Station Inn 

It's a Wonderful Life

It's a Wonderful Life
You have to wonder how this particular collaboration came to be. But whatever its roots, it looks to be an exceedingly enjoyable one. Stewart’s busy building a solo career rooted in bluegrass by way of a years-long stint with Brooks & Dunn; Stapleton’s renowned as a country hit songwriter and as the gritty lead singer for soul-bluegrass favorites The SteelDrivers (the IBMA’s Emerging Artist of the Year). Grier, who has his own IBMA statues on his figurative mantel, is equally inventive—and always surprising—on acoustic and electric guitars, and his latest album, Evocative, makes a compelling case for his maturity as a composer as well. Cure, on the other hand, is starting to make a few waves as one of a new generation of Nashville roots music bassists. Expect lots of variety, lots of outstanding songs and a boatload of fine picking to boot.
