What an amazing treat! IBMA was fortunate enough this year to have the legendary Tony Rice accompany Mountain Heart for after hours and official showcases. Between the 2 sets, a good number of classic Tony tunes were covered such as Manzanita, Old Train, Blue Railroad Train, and Nine Pound Hammer. Mountain Heart is an amazing band and Tony seemed to be having a blast… definitely the highlight of the entire IBMA conference!Purchase Print / View Entire Post

Can’t get a better band anywhere… Luke Bulla on the fiddle, Bryan Sutton on guitar, Paul Franklin on Steel, and Tommy G. on drums. Some of Nashville’s finest came together for Dave Peterson’s IBMA after hours showcase. Only in Nashville can surprises like this happen!Purchase Print / View Entire Post

The Cherryholmes Band put on a spectacular show at IBMA… we were pretty worn out and almost missed this show, but we came back and caught Cherryholmes and The Grascals… lucky for us that we did! 10-5-2007Purchase Print / View Entire Post
Sierra is amazing!!! I first saw her a number of years ago playing with Alison Krauss… I think it was one of the Bluegrass specials they taped at the Ryman or the Opry House. I think she was 12 at the time.
She has only gotten better in the last 4 or 5 years, her IBMA shows were awesome!
