Steve Gulley & Tim Stafford
The second and final duet record by Tim and the late, great Steve Gulley, who passed away just a few months after this record, his last recording, was completed. Though they’re each veteran songwriters and artists—both in bands and on their own—Steve Gulley and Tim Stafford have enjoyed special acclaim as one of the most creative and successful songwriting teams in bluegrass music, with scores of recorded co-writes to their credit. They co-wrote the 2008 IBMA song of the year, "Through the Window of a Train," as well as a 2020 nominated song, "Both Ends of the Train," both recorded by Blue Highway. Their previous record, "Dogwood Winter," (2010) was a critically-acclaimed success. A single from this record, "Still Here," was #1 on the Bluegrass Today Top 30 Airplay chart on September 11, 2020. Much-anticipated, this collection of Tim and Steve's songs features veterans Ron Stewart, Barry Bales, Dale Ann Bradley and newcomer Thomas Cassell. It is a fitting legacy to Steve.
