2. He Fronted Several Bands Before Going Solo

The Kentucky coal miner’s son was once the lead singer of a bluegrass quintet called The SteelDrivers from 2008 to 2010, and released two albums with them. He then founded the Jompson Brothers in 2010, which was more in the Southern-rock vein. They released one album and toured with the Zac Brown Band. Traveller is his debut record as a solo artist, and it already seems like a classic.
