Woody Platt, Graham Sharp, and Mike Ashworth of the Steep Canyon Rangers visited with Scotty on the air this past week during New Tunes at Two.  We featured their new album 'Out in the Open' and they also performed a live tune.  They perform this Saturday, January 27 at the ExploreAsheville.com Arena in Asheville, NC.
