Acclaimed singer, songwriter and musician Billy Strings is nominated for Best Bluegrass Album at the 63rd GRAMMY Awards for his critically acclaimed new record, Home. The live awards ceremony will be broadcast Sunday, January 31 at 8:00pm ET/7:00pm CT on CBS.
Out now on Rounder Records, Home was produced by Glenn Brown (Greensky Bluegrass) and furthers Strings’ reputation as “one of string music’s most dynamic young stars” (Rolling Stone). Across 14 songs written by Strings, Home combines his high velocity, flat-picking guitar technique with intense, confessional songwriting. The album reached #1 on both Billboard’s Heatseekers Albums chart and Bluegrass Albums chart and led Strings to debut at #11 on Billboard’s Emerging Artists chart.
Released to widespread critical praise, the Associated Press proclaimed, “it is his creative musical storytelling, paired with solid vocals on Home that should seal the deal, pleasing fans of the genre and creating some new ones…the perfect blend of pure talent and pluck,” while The Wall Street Journal declared, “Billy Strings has clearly emerged as a premier guitar flatpicker of this era.”
Continuing his breakout year, Strings will share a special encore broadcast of his Red Rocks Amphitheatre livestream concert this Saturday, November 28 at 8:00pm ET/7:00pm CT via Nugs. Originally recorded this past September, the special showing will be the final opportunity for fans to watch the landmark headline performance. Tickets for the event are on-sale now with a variety of purchase options including a special bundle with a MP3 download of the full, three-set performance. A portion of all proceeds will benefit Musically Fed, an organization that works with artists and venues across the country to help in the fight against hunger.
