Aim HighNashville, TN -- “Aim High” the new album by Steve Gulley & New Pinnacle is available today on Rural Rhythm Records. “Aim High” is their highly anticipated follow up album and contains the #1 single “Aim High” from Bluegrass Today’s Weekly Airplay Chart.

“Aim High” features three Gulley co-written songs including two with his award winning co-songwriter Tim Stafford; “Deceitful Kind”, “Love Brings You Home” and “Short Life Full Of Trouble” co-written with Larry Shell and Kim Williams. In addition, Carl Jackson co-wrote three songs for the new album, in addition to great songwriters such as Larry Cordle, Jim Rushing, Sonya Isaacs, Becky Buller, Keith Sewell and more.

"With the success of our debut project, the guys and I knew the expectations would be even higher for our sophomore recording. With that in mind, we went about the business of writing and finding the very best songs we could with an even stronger intensity. We hand - picked songs from within the band and from some of the greatest songwriters our music has to offer. That being said, I couldn't be happier with the new music we've created on "Aim High". I am so proud of our debut album and see it as laying the foundation for our music and sound but, as is always the case, once you have a strong foundation; it's time to start building on that. I really feel like we've done that with the new recording, while staying true to our band's original sound. I'm so excited to share this, the next chapter, with everyone."
