Flatt LonesomeNashville, TN -- Flatt Lonesome has been overwhelmed from wide-spread industry recognition with the announcement of several awards nominations recently, including FIVE International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA) nominations and their FIRST EVER Dove Award nomination.

The IBMA Award nominees were announced last month during a press conference in Nashville, Tennessee and the band was nominated for Entertainer of the Year, Vocal Group of the Year, Album of the Year for Runaway Train (Mountain Home Music), Song of the Year for "You're The One" and Gospel Recorded Performance for "In The Heat Of The Fire." The Gospel Music Association announced their Dove Award nominees earlier today and included "In The Heat Of The Fire" in the Bluegrass Recorded Song of the Year category.

News of the Dove Award nomination was a welcome surprise for the band and especially for Kelsi Harrigill, who wrote "In The Heat Of The Fire" and performs with the band. "I am so thankful for this nomination alongside such great people whom I love and respect. God gave me this song during the most difficult time in my life and I owe all I have to Him. Thank you all!"
