For the third consecutive year, Sam has been nominated for Musician of the Year by the Country Music Association. The Musician of the Year category mirrors 2012 with Sam Bush (mandolin), who was nominated in the category for the first time in 2011; along with Paul Franklin (steel guitar); Dan Huff (guitar); Brent Mason (guitar); and the current title holder Mac McAnally (guitar).
Grammy Award winning multi-instrumentalist Sam Bush doesn't seem old enough to be a musical legend. And he's not. But he is. Alternately known as the King of Telluride and the King of Newgrass, Bush has been honored by the Americana Music Association and the International Bluegrass Music Association.
