Country Cooperative regularly highlights various artists including those in the bluegrass community. Their latest recognition is for multi-award-winning bluegrass music artists Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out. The band is on Rural Rhythm Records.
Success for 'Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out' was nearly an overnight occurrence for this group after its forming in 1991. Led by the International Bluegrass Music Association's (IBMA) 2-time "Male Vocalist Of The Year", Russell Moore, IIIrd Tyme Out, consisting of Moore (guitar), Steve Dilling (banjo), Justen Haynes (fiddle), Wayne Benson (mandolin), and Edgar Loudermilk (bass), has walked away with IBMA's "Vocal Group Of The Year" award 7 consecutive years.
All in all, the band has garnered 50 industry awards since their inception in 1991. Their a cappella renditions of many songs, featuring one of the most respected lead vocalists of all time, can rarely be matched and their superb instrumentation, from some of the best musicians in the business, provides even more quality sound to their rich vocal blend.
All this along with a heavy touring schedule, including many performances on the Grand Ole Opry as well as GAC and RFD channel programs, over 14 recordings to date, and a desire to present their fans with the best music possible, makes this "supergroup" one of bluegrass music's most recognized and in-demand bands in the genre's history.
This immensely popular band has won over 50 industry awards since the band’s conception in 1991 including: 7 consecutive wins as the IBMA Vocal Group of the Year; 5-time award winner of the SPBGMA Vocal Group of the Year; and Russell Moore as a 2-time award winner for the IBMA Male Vocalist of the Year, plus a 6-time winner of the SPBGMA Male Vocalist of the Year.
15th career album and the first since their 2004 hit CD, “The Best Durn Ride.” Russell Moore, founding member, lead vocalist and guitarist with the band said, “We are very excited about our new relationship with Sam Passamano and all the folks at Rural Rhythm Records and are looking forward to working with them on this new studio release! We all feel like this will be a groundbreaking recording for Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out and we are anxious to get it into everyone’s hands as soon as possible.
