We were courted by officials from Raleigh who proved beyond a doubt that they wanted World of Bluegrass to be part of their Fall calendar and culture. And long story short, we made a very tough decision to head to a new city and it went better than any of us dared to hope. Even the IBMA Awards show was a hit, despite the painful sacrifice of moving out of the Ryman Auditorium.

The BoxcarsNashville, TN --- The reigning IBMA Instrumental Group of the Year adds yet another honor to its growing list of accolades. The Boxcars (www.theboxcars.com) have received a GRAMMY nomination for Best Bluegrass Album for It's Just a Road. Less than four years ago, five artists with impeccable musical pedigrees and a passion for “just playing good bluegrass” came together to form The Boxcars. Although the members have winced at the term, the band has been often called a “supergroup” for the storied careers of its members: Adam Steffey, Ron Stewart, John Bowman, Keith Garrett and Harold Nixon. Still, the artists welcome each honor with characteristic humility.
