I’ll give a few thoughts:
The Steeldrivers’ new album does include a Chris Stapleton co-write, and he had co-writes on both of the Nichols-era Steeldrivers albums, too. I saw the current Steeldrivers lineup at the Grand Ole Opry in 2018, and they keep on rolling. Be sure to check out my 2020 bluegrass playlist on Spotify.
I saw Miss Tess at Americanafest last September, and you’ll find one of her videos on my 2020 Country Plus Showcase. As a fun fact, she sang harmony vocals on Billy Strings’ debut album.
I saw the Flyin’ A’s at the since-demolished Threadgill’s in Austin during SXSW a couple of years ago. That was my “go to” venue that week, because it was one of the few places I could find to park. A lot of critics/blogs last year enjoyed Emily Scott Robinson, and Threadgill’s was also where I saw her.
I saw Aubrie Sellers as Chris Stapleton’s opener in 2016, and met her a year or two later at CMA Fest, so I look forward to having the time to listen to her new album.
I’m not very familiar with Lena Paige, but she describes her style as “modern traditional country music,” so that sounds promising.
