STEVE GULLEY, “Family, Friends & Fellowship,” Rural Rhythm Christian. 14 tracks

Steve Gulley has been around the block a time or two.

He served a long apprenticeship at Kentucky’s historic Renfro Valley Barn Dance, gained national exposure with Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver and was a founding member of both Mountain Heart and Grasstowne.

Now he works solo or with Dale Ann Bradley.

Gulley’s first gospel album, “Family, Friends & Fellowship,” features not only his fine vocals, but an all-star lineup of friends.

The list includes Lawson, Bradley, Joe Mullins, Rickey Wasson, Kenny & Amanda Smith, Les Butler, Don Gulley (his father), Vic Graves, Linda Gulley (his mother), Debbie Gulley (his wife), Adam Steffey, Tim Stafford, Ron Stewart, Phil Ledbetter, Alan Bibey and a lot more.

Gulley wrote or co-wrote three songs on the album — “Scars In His Hands,” “The Man I Ought To Be” and “What Would You Have Me Do?,” a song about dealing with depression.

Bradley joins Gulley on Jimmy Martin and Paul Williams’ “Stormy Waters” and his father and Lawson join in on Hank Williams’ “House of Gold.”

The best known song on the album is “Jesus Loves Me,” which includes an introduction by Gulley’s 2-year-old grandson, Mark.

The album isn’t purely bluegrass gospel. There’s a lot of country gospel too.

But it’s a strong album by one of bluegrasses best vocalists.

    I’m excited to hear these new tunes from Steve when he plays the Sounds Like Home concert at Cove Lake State Park in Caryville, Tennessee, on Friday night, Sept. 26. He’ll be joined by Dale Ann Bradley, his dad Don’s bluegrass band from “back in the day”–the Pinnacle Mountain Boys–and other friends from the Cumberland Mountains region. It’s quite a homecoming!
