RadioBristol, TN/VA -- The Birthplace of Country Music is proud to present the Steep Canyon Rangers Album Launch Concert at the Paramount on Friday, August 28, 2015. The show starts at 7:00 p.m. and will feature the band’s new ninth studio album, Radio.

Though the album’s tune is steeped in the bluegrass that has made the sextet an in-demand live draw, banjo player and singer Sharp says the album has a wider range. “Radio travels the dial from top to bottom,” he says “The album tunes into the rock channel for a little while, then the blues, then country, pop and, of course, bluegrass.”

Do you remember the first time you fell in love with the music on the radio? Do you still remember every word to a song you haven’t heard in years? If so, you will understand where this album is coming from. Radio tunes in to what makes the Grammy-winning Steep Canyon Rangers a string band unlike any other, fusing a wide array of influences into their own, unmistakable voice. The Ranger's lastest album, Radio is schedule to be release August 28th on Rounder Records and the band will debut the album in Bristol.
