Confederate Railroad is a country band founded in the early 1990s from Texas, USA. The lead singer is Danny Shirley.Led by Shirley, the original group which came to the attention of Atlantic president Rick Blackburn, consisted of guitarist Michael Lamb, Gates Nichols on pedal steel, keyboard player Chris McDaniel, Wayne Secrest on bass and Mark DuFresne on drums.

Lamb left the group in 1995 and was replaced by Jimmy Dormire.Despite Confederate Railroad's outward appearance as a tougher-than-leather Southern rock band, it was a reflective ballad which spoke of two old reliable loves which vaulted the group into stardom.

"Jesus and Mama" entered the country chart during the warm months of 1992, and hit the Top Five that autumn.
