The album Nobody Knows You has been nominated for “Bluegrass Album of the Year” at the 55th annual Grammy Awards.
Released this past spring from Rounder Records, it is the seventh album from the group. Met with critical and commercial acclaim, the album is fueled by deft musicianship, original songwriting, distinctive vocals and creative arrangements that eschew all formulas. This nomination marks the second for the group, who were nominated in the same category at last year’s Grammy ceremony for Rare Bird Alert, their collaborative effort with comedy icon Steve Martin.
The group first formed during their college days at UNC-Chapel Hill. Ten years later, the band has only deepened their commitment to roots music performing with fierce instrumental prowess but also providing deeply moving songwriting and harmonies, infusing traditional bluegrass with contemporary themes and arrangements.
The 55th Annual Grammy Awards will air live from Los Angeles on Feb. 10.
