Cornbread Red has a new CD of bluegrass tributes, this one for rock music legend Bob Seger. Runnin’ Against The Wind features their take on Seger classics like Night Moves, We’ve Got Tonight, Like A Rock and Against The Wind.
Cornbread Red likes to refer to themselves as “the Steely Dan of bluegrass,” a reference to the successful pop act whose two primary writers spend most of their time in the studio carefully crafting their music.
The band consists of Stan Dailey on bass and lead vocals, Mark Whitehead on mandolin and guitar, Mark Scott on banjo and Dennis Clifton on resonator guitar. They have recorded a number of similar projects for CMH records, including tributes to Aerosmith, Nickelback and Maroon 5.
