Steve Young is the American Troubadour – a pioneer of alt-country and Americana music and writer-composer of songs consideredmasterpieces, recorded by the Eagles, Dolly Parton, Joan Baez, Waylon Jennings, Dierks Bentley, Travis Tritt, Shooter Jennings and dozens more. Keith Urban sings Steve's “7 Bridges Road” -- popularized by the Eagles -- as the first song in his concerts. And Steve's "Lonesome, On'ry and Mean" became Waylon's signature tune
“Once you've heard Steve Young, he's impossible to forget.” – David Freedlander, American Songwriter
Steve counts 14 critically acclaimed recordings on his discography. His newest CD is Stories 'Round the Horseshoe Bend,' a live concert recording. Rolling Stone awarded 4 stars to two of Steve's CDs – Renegade Picker and No Place to Fall. Billboard selected his Primal Young a “Critic's Choice,” remarking that "Steve is a singer of major status."
Jubal opens the concert with high-energy, fresh sounds of earthy tunes. Then, Steve anchors the show with his no-holds-barred baritone and lightning-fast, finger-style guitar, taking the audience into the musical soul of America. His vibrant repertoire draws from Roots, Appalachian, Blues, Alt-Country, Americana, Southern Gospel, Celtic and Tejano.
Among the songs you'll hear are Steve's own version of classic songs he's written like "Seven Bridges Road," "Lonesome On'ry and Mean," and "Montgomery in the Rain." Plus Steve and Jubal, father and son, partner on songs, trading guitar licks and artfully blending their voices in close harmonies only blood bonds can achieve. Together, they are living proof of the force of true roots music.
