Steel Blossoms to release new album.

The Steel Blossoms are set to release their new album and have set up a Pledge Music campaign to help support it! As of today, only 20 days are left until this campaign runs out and they are only 87% towards their goal. The Steel Blossoms may seem familiar to some listeners because we play their song, “Dancing in the Kitchen” here on Mudcat Country and can’t wait to add a few from their new album because in our opinion, the Steel Blossom’s music has value.

In their Pledge Music campaign, they have too many prizes to list. The minimum is $9 and it will get you an Access Pass, which is downloads of their new album, including behind the scenes updates. For $1000, which is the max, you will get the new CD signed by the Steel Blossoms, a Shout Out on Social Media,  your name in the liner notes, and Life-time appreciation. The Steel Blossoms offer well over a dozen of other offers in between those prices ($9-$1000).

Be sure to share this post on your social media and head over to the Steel Blossoms Pledge Page and reserve your copy of their new CD today!
