Three of the greatest voices in modern bluegrass, Dale Ann Bradley, Steve Gulley and Kim Fox, appear on a special Mountain Stage, recorded at the Paramount Center for the Arts in Bristol, Tenn./Va.

Bradley was named the IBMA female vocalist of the year three consecutive years from 2007-2009. Gulley, one of bluegrass music's most gifted tenors, is a veteran of acclaimed bands Doyle Lawson & Quicksilver, Mountain Heart, and currently sings with Grasstowne. He has also released an album with Tim Stafford, Dogwood Winter. Fox, a highly regarded songwriter and member of family band 3 Fox Drive, recently had her song "Nothing To Lose" recorded by Reba McEntire for the country star's album Keep On Loving You.

The trio's set includes Fox's "Shoo Fly Pie," a Carter Family favorite, "50 Miles of Elbow Room," and Gulley's chilling rendition of George Jones' "The Grand Tour."
