Additional information about the October 2 Awards Show:

  • Each year, the IBMA produces a high quality, entertaining show that recognizes the rich traditions of bluegrass music and the accomplishments of the music’s outstanding practitioners that, through the media, also introduces the music to people who might not otherwise come in contact with bluegrass.
  • The IBMA Awards are determined by the recipients’ peers and colleagues in the bluegrass music industry.
  • Lee Ann Womack and Jerry Douglas will host the Awards Show in Raleigh on Thursday, Oct. 2.
