SANCTUARY 9/30/12

Hi Folks,

The IBMA Awards Show was held this week in Nashville and some of the winners are:

The Gibson Brothers for Entertainer of the Year, and gospel song of the year for: “Singing As We Rise”.

Male Vocalist: Russell Moore

Female Vocalist: Dale Ann Bradley

Vocal Group: Blue Highway

Guitar Player: Doc Watson

The rest of the winners can be found at the IBMA website.

I don’t really like these award shows for a number of reasons.  The same people seem to win year after year.  It seems to be a popularity contest.  Russell Moore and Dale Ann Bradley must either be the nicest folks in bluegrass or have a great publicist.  How can anyone possibly determine who the best person or group in any category is?  There are so many great singers and musicians in bluegrass that anyone can or should win it.  I guess the publicity is good for the industry, but it seems to be a exercise in futility.

Thanks for listening.

Larry

  1. Hi Larry
    I feel the same way about awards shows. I can’t be bothered with them – it’s the same with southern gospel and country. I don’t care if a song is number one on the charts or if no one has never heard of them – if they did a good job I play it. I like what I play and play what I like.

    • Are there any other opinions about this topic. Though I don’t want this to be another Bluegrass-L, I would like some feedback.

      • Hi Larry, I’m sure there maybe some deals going on. That said I still nominate if I happen to be on my favorite artist’s w/s at that time.
        It’s a way of showing support and most of them feel just being nominated is an honor too.
