Photo by Rusty Russell Guitarist Steve Gulley had already won esteem for his lofty tenor voice and emotional delivery as an entertainer at Kentucky's historic Renfro Valley before he joined Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, bringing him before a wider but no less appreciative audience. 

Steve was also a founding member of the bluegrass group Mountain Heart where he recorded five highly acclaimed CDs as the lead singer for that band.

He has been tapped as a harmony and featured singer on projects like the widely-praised Keith Whitley album, "Sad Songs and Waltzes," and many others including projects by Ronnie Bowman, Dan Tyminski, Tim Stafford, David Parmley, Dale Ann Bradley, Jeff Parker and Grasstowne's own Phil Leadbetter just to name a few.

He has also earned multiple Male Vocalist of the Year nominations from the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music of America.

Steve's first solo project titled "Sounds Like Home" has just been released on the Lonesome Day Records label. More about this project in the CD Store.

In December 2006, Steve joined fellow musicians Alan Bibey and Phil Leadbetter to form Grasstowne, a bluegrass/acoustic band. The new group, which includes newcomers Jamey Booher and Jason Davis, began touring in February 2007..
