The Gibson Brothers, who have just released their fourth studio album, “Iron & Diamonds,” continue on a touring trek that will take them deep into fall and will include a variety of bluegrass music festivals. The tour started last month in Tennessee.

“Iron & Diamonds” showcases the brothers’ trademark harmonies and songwriting style. Carefully chosen covers like Tom Petty‘s “Cabin Down Below” are interspersed with original songs. The Gibson Brothers band includes Mike Barber (bass), Clayton Campbell (fiddle), and Rick Hayes (mandolin).

Leigh and Eric Gibson received a Best Emerging Artist award from the IBMA in 1998.
