Confederate Railroad returns with ‘Lucky To Be Alive’ on July 15th

Multi-platinum recording group Confederate Railroad is making their return to radio and retail with the upcoming album, Lucky To Be Alive. The project marks the first album release in nine years for the Grammy-nominated group, and will be released on July 15th to music retailers nationwide. The ACM award-winning band are also bringing the star power on the album, with guest appearances from Willie Nelson, John Anderson, Colt Ford and former NFL coach, Jerry Glanville, on a special 20th Anniversary version of the signature smash, “Trashy Women.”

“Every night we play this song I am amazed and thankful at its staying power,” states frontman Danny Shirley.

In addition to the new, revamped version of “Trashy Women,” the highly anticipated album features all-new material. From the instantly catchy title track, to the feel-good anthem “If I Ever Cross That Line,” there is a perfect combination of intense ballads and infectious upbeat songs. Something new is that Danny is a writer on seven of the album’s tracks. The Blue Miller & Danny Shirley-produced album showcases the band’s unique style, bringing their southern–rock-meets-country-conscience front and center. “Fast Cars And Guitars” is another standout song, with a classic 90’s feel that will leave fans of traditional country music singing and dancing for days. It’s revved up by long-time friend of the band, Hall of Fame member, Charlie Daniels.

Another nod to Shirley’s musical roots and ground-breaking track for Railroad is the shimmering bluegrass jewel “Don’t Feel As Young As I Used To” highlighted by guest artist Dan Tyminski of Union Station.

In support of the album, the band is hitting the road with a jam-packed spring/summer tour schedule (see dates below). Fans will be treated to performances some of their biggest hits including “Queen of Memphis” and “Daddy Never Was the Cadillac Kind,” along with new tracks from the upcoming album.
